Retractable Gear Tether
Reviewed by Charles Kinnear in Cool Tools as follows.
I use the T-Reign Gear Tether to keep my stuff within reach and ready for use. I received a gear tether as a gift and quickly had to order a couple more for other uses. I keep one for my EMT shears clipped to a D ring in a cargo pocket. The shears are ready for immediate use and if they're dropped they retract right back to where I can find them again without looking. I have another for my GPS and a third with a case for my digital camera.
Made in the USA, they have a strong Kevlar cord which after a year of continuous use is not fraying or showing signs of wear.
My sons are in the army and both use these to keep critical tools and gear secure and available when on duty.

I swear by these things. Indispensable for a ny activity where you need something right at hand. They come in all capacities: from delicate wires or cords that can retract a few ounces to beefy flat webbing that can retract several pounds.
I use three while fly fishing. One retractor holds a hemostat and a knot tool (hemostats have tons of uses and gently removing a barbless hook from your soon-to-be-released fish's jaws is one of them); and, the second holds a point and shoot digital camera right on top of my left clavicle; and, the third one is attached to my back and also to my net - I reach back and pull the net around to land a fish and just release the net when I'm done and it retracts right back where it belongs.
