Anyone got any recommendations for decent straps for securing loads in vans?

Ratchets straps are way too big and cumbersome for the majority of loads but the smaller cam buckle straps that I buy always seem to be as thin as ribbon.

What I'm really trying to find is a cam buckle strap that is sturdy, with a lashing capacity of 200kg+ rather than these tiddly things that can only hold under 200kg... Any suggestions?

Ratchet straps come in many sizes. Just like courier drivers.
