I use straps that I found at Wal-Mart or K-Mart.  They have a "buckle" like
the straps on my pack instead of a hook.  I also use ones that have a 
buckle what is spring loaded.  I usually strap my sleeping pad and my
sleeping bag together at the bottom of my external frame pack.  A friend
straps his pad to the ice axe loops on his internal frame...
