    I am on a strap purge and order. I just don’t keep them if they are even close to being suspect (not for the price as they are cheap)
    I had some older ones Blair left on trailer for me (of which I still have a few good one) plus I had like 30 plus new ones I kept around replacing as I go.

    I prefer Kinedyne, I just feel they are better than Ancra especially as they start to wear in a bit. I hate how Ancra feels when they are worn a bit.

    But there are others I see

    Mytee - are these just Ancra or Kinedyne? Have any of y’all used them?

    US Cargo Control - Anyone use them?

    Any other recommended brands?

    I use the us cargo control straps, cheaper, and last just as long as the others without weighing more/being as hard to roll up. I dont mind ancra, but kinedyne is too thick, it wears well, but is a pain to use

    Also gotta look at $/year analysis.

    If you can get a cheap strap that lasts half as long as a 2x more expensive strap, youre not saving money either way.

    I just budget 400$ in bungees, 2 inch straps (and ratchets) and 4inch straps a year. Tarps as needed. So far im well under that.

    Last us cargo control order of 2200$ outfitted 2 trucks for roughly 3 years, im just now breaking into my 3rd case of straps at 1.5 years, and my 2nd case of 2 inch straps are completely untouched

    Last I saw they’re all that/ just some are heavier n thicker webbing like if they're used on abrasive cargo. Sposed to last longer against that.
    Thinking if you wear them out it might be worth looking into/

    Stay away from the high abrasion ones. I got a box of those to try and it almost set off a driver revolt. After a couple of months use they were still like trying to roll up sheet aluminum even without them being frozen.

    Kindyne I use what I know and trust.
    I have used U.S. Cargo Control and Ancra and have broken both of them on the first use. I don't use them even if new and free, they would go in the dumpster just to be safe. Your use may very.

    I do have a couple high abrasion chain end straps I bought and man, they are not fun, when I do use them I zip tie them back in a bundle because they unravel and are a pain.
