Depends on your rack, westy racks are good for bungee cords but heavy kit is ratchet strap jobby.nets are avpain as the get tangled and make you less dilligent. If you ratchet all the big kit and pack evenly with two bungee's on each item to avoid failure :-)Its up to you really, but look at the cost if your caught on the m5 loosing your load. Not 8)

Bungees on most things and the odd electrical tie, been all over Europe even the Alps with that combination and fingers crossed I've never lost a thing. :wink:
