We're happy to introduce our Key Straps in five bold and new (yet familiar) colors of nylon webbing.
Key Straps have long been available in Black webbing and, later, in Coyote webbing. For several years now we've also made Key Straps from our Halcyon fabric, and though they work just fine, I've never really been satisfied with the aesthetic.
About two years ago, we started kicking around the idea of having color-matched webbing made for us, but then I got distracted, had lunch, designed a bunch of new bags, went for countless hikes, and generally forgot about the whole thing. But every once in a while I'd find myself using a Halcyon Key Strap, and I'd think to myself "This has got to change—these are great, but we can do even better."
We finally did follow through, and now here they are: Key Straps in five new colors of nylon webbing. Wasabi, Northwest Sky, Iberian, Island and Ultraviolet. So along with Black and Coyote, there's now seven colors of Key Strap, each in two lengths and two varieties (Snaphook/Snaphook or Snaphook/O-Ring).
For those of you uninitiated into the world of Key Straps: they're handy short straps that attach to O-rings sewn inside all our bags, and they allow you to tether small stuff that might easily sneak out of a pocket or compartment, like when you're removing larger items or otherwise not paying attention. Key Straps allow you to be double sure that important items (your keys, for example) are not only inside your bag, but further tethered to it as well. Of course you can color code all that stuff too, and we've just given you even more options for that—or if you're like me, you'll just have another excuse to add more color to life.
Our new Island, Wasabi, Ultraviolet, Iberian, and Northwest Sky Key Straps are in-stock, ready to ship, and available for order on the Key Strap page.
