I love some harbor freight....but their camstraps are the junkiest of junk.

We use some really old NRS straps that live outdoors (under a carport) year round that have held up great.

Our straps are not the cheapest (but they are not the most expensive either!) We do however guarantee that they are the toughest straps out there, period. And all Tuff River Stuff products are guaranteed for life.

"Our Guarantee: If any Tuff River Stuff product fails to meet your expectations at any time it will be repaired or replaced free."

If you bring a repair to Ray on something that he made and try to pay him, all he'll tell you is "I haven't charged a penny to repair gear I made in twenty years, I'm not about to start now."

Also, we may be in CO (not ID) but you can come into our little shop, meet Ray, dig through the bins of straps and hands-on shop to your hearts content! If you ever make it out for FIBARK (or any Ark boating) please feel free to come by the shop! (We're just one block from the river & the Salida boat ramp.) Every piece of TRS equipment is made right here at the shop in Salida, CO.

We are also happy to make any kind of custom strap that you can dream up. Feel free to call and talk to Ray about his straps, material, warranty, custom ideas, etc... any time! 719-539-5444

I'll second Rays straps at Tuff River Stuff. As a multi day river guide who is dealing with straps everyday for about 7 months of the year, the webbing is soft on the hands, yet durable. Hands down the best straps.

NRS the same blue stuff they use currently I think. Don't know what the Strapworks material is, but they dissolved surprisingly fast. They are long gone. From now on it'll be TRS cuz it's good AND local.
