I have a few different brands of the bands and most of them are different sizes than the wrist ones. The wrist ones are larger, but I'm sure they will work on larger portable stacks.

The one i get for my fiio e17 is way smaller than that of the usual rubber wristband.  I use velcro on my ipod touch and fiio e17

jaben has this pouch which allows you to carry your ipod/ipod touch with your amp.  think it is called hippo ampsack.  think it is overpriced though...

ALO Audio has the Black Star Amp Wallet

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 85

Another vote for the rubber O-rings! They not only grab the equipment together but also act as a protective layer (like rubber feet), all around the equipment! And I must publicly thank the member cogsand gears again for coming up with this brilliant idea and sharing it with the community...

For those of lower intelligence, like myself, these are called hair ties or bands. The price at one local Walgreens' was $3.00 while across town they were $4.50.

 

I found a few sizes and some colored (earth tone and bright) sets. On another thread here, I read the elastic bands come with or without a black rubber strip. I didn't look for those. There was one set marked "jelly" rather than "elastic", so I bought one ($3.50) this afternoon.

The Head-Fi straps seem to work well enough.  They look like this:

I'm pretty sure, they were only available at Can Jam, don't think you can purchase them online.

Hmm, dunno actually.  I picked up a couple of them at the latest SF meet (a.k.a. Changfest) a few weeks back.

Honestly, 3M dual lock is the best solution I have found. Especially with something like a iPod touch or a Cowon J3 with a full touch screen. The bands get in the way anyway you adjust them. I'm not sure where you can get some but I ordered from iTapestore.com, not sure if they ship international. I'm sure amazon has it as well.

I bought the 3M bumpons as feet so that the amp has a little grab against the back of the DAP instead of metal on metal then the bands secure the units very well with no slide.

The Tesa powerstrips from Amazon UK are £3.50 for 16 strips. They hold the arrow to your case with absolutely no movement. I have tried the bands and the amps slides around a bit, especially if is in your pocket/bag.
