Summit (and a few others) makes what they call "rubber wire".
Basically, thin gauge wire with a thick rubber cladding on it.
I buy a pack of this, which is I don't know how many feet, and clip pieces to length. I put short pieces on the carry handle on a pack, for instance. Then I get in my stand and I use it like a giant twist tie...wrap it around the stand and twist it a few times and it holds. Even fairly heavy stuff. If I'm a little sketchy that the pack might be heavy or whatever, I'll put two pieces there so I can double up. It's really handy stuff and it's not super expensive. Cabela's has it, Amazon has it, I've seen it lots of places.
No knot tying, no tangles (you can wrap it up and it stays as you wrap it!), and no clips/clicks/noise to use it. Quiet, simple, effective.
