Good deal - always a handy item to have around!

Just a quick firsthand review - I have a couple of these, and the adjustable length is very handy. The flat design of the bungee itself is nice for some things, and makes no difference for others.
However, the mechanism to adjust the length on this one is a little awkward - you have to hold the one hook at just the right angle, pull the loose end through, then adjust the slack. Usually holding the hook at just the right angle means removing it from whatever it was hooked to, and involves a couple of steps of trial & error to get the tension right. A minor hassle.

In contrast, this style [amazon.com] (for about $1 more) is much more convenient - once both ends are hooked, just pull on the loose end and it tightens. It takes a little getting used to, but at least installing and tensioning the bungee can be done in a single step. Highly recommended!
