Full Review

We loved the first iteration of the MODL Outdoors Infinity Tool, so when we heard that there was a second iteration on the horizon, we knew we had to get a hold of it. It’s very similar, but there are a few changes to note. Let’s dive in!

The Rundown

There are two main parts to the Infinity Tool: the strap and the studs. The former is silicone, and the latter is stainless steel. Both are durable and show no signs of wear, even after heavy use.

MODL Outdoors Infinity Tool 2.0 Bunch

The straps come in two sizes: 8 inches (20.32 cm) and 16 inches (40.64 cm). You can combine the straps using the studs, creating straps that are any multiple of 8 inches in length. If you only have 16-inch straps, you don’t have as much flexibility in terms of size.

At the time of writing, six colorways are available, broken up into two categories. The first four, Black, Glacier, OD Green, and Lavender, can hold up to 70 pounds (31.75 kg), which we think is mega strong for a stretchy strap. The other two, Green Glow and Blue Glow, can hold 40 pounds (18.14 kg). Despite being unable to support as much weight, these two glow in the dark, which is a lot of fun, especially while camping or in a hostel environment where you don’t want to shine a bright light in your neighbor’s eye. The product page shows a dog wearing two strapped together at night, which is a fun way to keep track of your canine.

At the moment, the Infinity Tool comes in packs of 2, 4, 8, and 16 straps. You can get all 8-inch or 16-inch models or go half and half, which we’d recommend for most travelers. With a few of each, you can secure large and small gear with ease. Each strap comes with one stud, which is how you connect the straps.

The second iteration of the Infinity Tool brought new studs and accessories to the party, which are a ton of fun.

The standard studs, or StudLinks, look more polished and geometric compared to the original. This is a small change that adds flair if you wear them as your daily wristband.

MODL also added the HookStud, a curved hook that enables you to use the strap like a bungee cord or turn the belts into a hanging hook nearly anywhere. Wrap the straps around a tree, light pole, car side mirror, or anything really, then pop a HookStud in to hang up a shirt to dry, your garbage bag for a tailgate, or a pair of wet shoes you don’t want to get dusty. The world is your oyster!

Additionally, you can cinch gear down using the standard StudLinks or the HookStud. There’s a metal window between the studs or between the stud and the hook; feed the strap through to create a loop and then attach it to the stud. This operates more like a zip tie than a carabiner, which is incredibly helpful for gear like a yoga mat.

They’ve added personality studs, too, which don’t serve a function but look neat and add character to your Infinity Tool; pop them through a loop wherever you have space, and boom, you’ve got a conversation starter. If you’re familiar with Jibbitz on Crocs, it’s like that. There are SymbolStuds, which are like emojis for your strap. Then, we’ve got SpikeStuds, which help make your Infinity Tools look more punk rock. Last, there’s Yin Yang Studs, which will help make your straps more balanced. Well, mentally, not physically.

While we’re all for adding personality to your pack, the customizable studs don’t increase functionality while traveling. However, the Infinity Tool, in a general sense, can.

Let’s say that you’re going to the laundromat, and you probably should have brought two bags to load your clothing into, but you only brought one. As you overload the bag, tops and bottoms will start to try and fall out if you aren’t holding onto the handles. With the Infinity Tool, you can cinch the handles together tightly so that your favorite tee doesn’t fall out as you head home.

Similarly, if you go to the grocery store and have a bag that is too small or your stomach convinces you to get too many snacks, you can secure the top of your reusable grocery tote to make sure none of your goodies fall onto the ground. You can also feed the loop through multiple bags’ handles; that way, none of the bags are missed when you grab it (which prevents dropped goods), making the whole scenario more comfortable because of the silicone.

The Infinity Tool can be used as a more versatile carabiner, too. You can get around awkward corners and weird loops with the strap, which we dig. That said, sometimes a carabiner is easier to use and can lock, which is a key feature for some.

If your daypack doesn’t have a sternum strap or yours breaks, you can use the Infinity Tool as a makeshift one to ensure you’re comfortable on your trek, as we highlighted in our review of the first iteration of the Infinity Tool.

The opportunities are endless, and it all comes in a fun package you can wear. How small is this thing exactly?


When rolled up, this thing is roughly the size of a small carabiner, or smaller, depending on what model you’re comparing it to. That said, you can wear the Infinity Tool on your wrist, which isn’t realistic for most carabiners.

It’s easy to attach the straps on the outside of your pack or sling so you can always access them. It’s just as easy to connect them inside your bag, too.

Generally speaking, these things are easy to get to and from your destination. Whether you throw them inside or outside your daypack or sling, in your glove box, or on your wrist, they’re lightweight, easy to pack away, and can be cinched to almost anything to ensure your ride from point A to point B is secure.

Quick Comparison

We’ve spoken about it briefly, but this feels like an excellent place to go over the noticeable changes between the first and second iterations of the MODL Outdoors Infinity Tool 2.0.

First, there are more colorways available. Who doesn’t love a few extra choices at checkout?

Next, there’s a slight change to the standard stud, or StudLinks, making them look more textured and geometric. If you wear the Infinity Tool as a bracelet or plan to, this will look nicer. Plus, in our experience, they’re easier to use now because of where the points are located. Additionally, you can purchase these separately, and they’ll work with your first set of tools.

The HookStud is also available to hang things from the Infinity Tool more efficiently, including garbage, clothing, and other accessories.

There’s now the ability to personalize your Infinity Tool, too, using the SymbolStuds, SpikeStuds, and Yin Yang Studs. These will also work with your older tool and don’t add functionality. If you get two of the latter, you can call your bracelet the Ying Yang Twins, which is a lot of fun.

In our experience, there isn’t a huge difference in using the 2.0 compared to the first iteration. That said, there are more customizable options, and some of the studs make it more fun and easier to use the system, which is worth commending.
