Survival Straps hail out of our own back yard, right here in the US of A; Ponte Vedra Beach, FL to be exact. They're toted as having up to 15 feet of 550 test military spec paracord, as in the same stuff they use to pack their parachutes. To clasp all of this around your wrist, is a marine grade stainless steel shackle, backed by a guarantee to never break or rust. Basically, if you never have to deploy it, it very well could outlast you.

With all of that said, these things are well built, the knots are all tight, and there is not a single spot on it that I could find where I felt there was a flaw or lack of craftsmanship. This particular color happens to be the camo green, which for me works well. It's been a while since you may have seen my scribblings on this site, but you may remember that I would consider myself a no-frills type of guy. Sure I'll take my silver rimmed riding glasses, and flashy stuff here and there, but for the most part, I'm normally more subtle. That doesn't mean that they only cater to us subtle types; looking at their website (www.survivalstraps.com), they have just about every color and color combination you could want. They have everything from military/patriotic, EMS, Olympic team, MossyOak, and a good deal of Collegiate schools.


Should you have to find yourself in a bind in any number of situations, whether it be out hunting, on the side of the road, on a hike in the Rockies, or any other random situation, and need a section of rope, these little guys prove to be pretty handy. They unravel in no-time, and will definitely bail you out in a pinch.


When you think of the term “'murica”, you may think of rough and tough, no frills, and “get the job done.” The Survival Strap could definitely be defined simply by “'Murica!” In addition to that, a portion of every purchase from their website goes to support our nations heroes. My only question for the Survival Straps team is, how much is actually sent, and where exactly is it sent?

With all of that said, their products are solid. They range in price from $25 to $30 each, so check them out!
