Being one who has always been able to reach my toes without the help of a strap, I never really felt like I needed one. The Gaiam Stretch Strap changed my perspective.

Gaiam Restore Multi-Grip Stretch Strap Review
After a few sessions on the mat, I realized how versatile this $13 strap is. While the lime green color was perhaps a bit jazzy for my taste, the multiple handles were unexpectedly useful.
The handle options allow for safe stretching, preventing the possibility of over extending a muscle. The padded foot space, placed dead center in the strap, keeps your feet from slipping. Having the foot hold allows the rest of your body to relax, so you can get the most out of the stretch.
Gaiam provided an easy to follow guide leaving no room for excuses. Stretch out those hamstrings and be ready for your next adventure!
