"Plastic buckles and closure components have been designed and manufactured for over 25 years by ITW Nexus. In fact, in 1977, we invented the original Side Release buckle that revolutionized the closure market. The following web catalog contains ITW Nexus’ standard plastic buckle and closure offerings of products that we have developed through the years. If you do not find a solution to your plastic hardware needs, please contact ITW Nexus to review your exact closure demands."

http://www.itwnexus.com/

You can order free samples, limited to 5 of any individual item and a total of 15 items per order. They have buckles, cord locks, cord ends, hooks, links, clips, swivels and plenty of other stuff. I ordered some cord ends for the paracord pulls I put on my fleece jacket, and some cord locs for shockcord tie-downs on my pack. While you can only place small orders, bear in mind that the stuff is completely FREE!

I particularly like these emergency whistles. They are of one-piece, virtually unbreakable construction, with a built-in clip and lanyard loop. They are VERY loud, and they come in my favorite color. :)

I ordered stuff from them last time their link was posted in the Bug Out Gear section and my order never came. It's been over 2 months.

Bummer. I've placed five or six orders over the past year and it's never taken more than about 10 days to get my stuff. :?

I'm not 100% sure what you mean by retention cords. Just something to keep it rolled up tight? If so, I'd use some shockcord (550 cord would work too, but I'd prefer shockcord since it would increase compression) and some of these cord locks.

Success! :D

I got four of those cord locks in the package I received this morning. I've been sitting here fiddling with them and they're pretty cool.

I also got some zipper pulls with a built-in whistle. I think I'll put these on the jackets I most frequently wear when hiking. Pretty neat stuff... and free!
