other little strap I use for attaching throwbag or water bottle to frame with carabiner. for less than $ 20.oo.
Very nice. I really like those. The only change I think would be to make soft-tie connections to the oar rather than the metal ring. Phantom makes a very similar set except the non-oar side is intended to be tied between the oar tower and the oar lock - IMHO a very bad design. Furthermore, they've gone through a few iterations with buckles that are plastic or only one side is metal. It would be interesting to find out the breaking point of that buckle.
