The Tumaz Yoga Strap seems to be an awesome way to get your workout on and move your body without the need for heavy gym equipment. For such a relatively cheap product, it delivers what it claims. The strap/band is very flexible and not very rigid.
I like that the material is made of a thinner [3mm] than usual 4mm rubber band since I use this for stretching and want to avoid any damage to my body from using a thicker rubber band.
The strap is quite thick, expands a bit like BionX, and feels durable to me. Although it's not really clear, it definitely holds a lot and I don't doubt its ability to handle a 1.07 ton weight.
This is a 5' piece of stretchy rubber, so it might be too short for some people, but you can always add additional pieces.
The strap is very comfortable and unlike rubber bands I have used in the past, doesn't make my hand cramp and cause me to stop stretching if I use it right after running. But I must say that using the BionX has a similar effect, which may be why I use that for my stretching (if I'm stretching post-run and/or pre-workout).
I would only suggest combining it with a foam roller and/or foam bridging tool so you can take advantage of some of the weight capacity of this strap to add to the strengthening use cases for the strap before stretching.
I do like that you can get creative with what you do on this stretchband without being limited to the preconceived notions. It's also helpful that it's not a latex product which is my personal phobia!
