The exercise is generally referred to as band assisted chins/pull ups.

As mentioned Ironwoody are a great place to buy from and even have a "pull up package" on offer.

I use mountain bike inner tubes as bands. If you know a cyclist they might have some old tubes they do not need, i.e. too many punctures or some just replace tubes rather than bother repairing. I know of 2 discarded bikes in my area.

If you only want them for chinups you could try negative chinups instead, as you will have no need for the bands once you are strong enough -though they do have other uses.

These definitely work for pullups and chinups as well as a heap of other stuff.

Mobilitywod uses them a lot too, might help you with your chin ups

For bricks and mortar, Crossfit in Sandyford should also have these, I would ring them first to ensure they have them as they tend to turn them around fairly quickly.
