Survival Straps Product Review

There are myriad situations where it would be helpful, useful, or even necessary to carry a length of rope with you. However, having enough along might mean carrying a backpack, duffel, or other storage bag. And, this only works if you have the container with you. Enter Survival Straps bracelets.

"Survival Straps are stylish bracelets made in America from super strong military spec paracord which gives them a secondary purpose. In an emergency situation, unravel the bracelet to deploy the paracord to help get you out of a jam.

  • Made from several feet of super strong military spec paracord.
  • The Stainless Steel Shackle makes your bracelets adjustable on your wrist.
  • A Break away pin is included for safety.
  • Unravel the bracelet in an emergency anytime when super strong rope can help you out.
  • If you use it in an emergency situation, we will send you a new one for free!"

Survival Bracelets sent me several different bracelets to try out, along with a Wounded Warrior key fob. Tazer and I drooled over the packages, as we're both outdoor gear nuts (the apple doesn't fall from the tree!). I chose the understated olive bracelet, while he got the Wounded Warrior Project in black.

One thing I really like is their support of the Wounded Warrior Project.

What we do for Wounded Warrior Project and why we do it:
50% of the proceeds from the Wounded Warrior Project Survival Straps gear goes directly to them. You can find the Wounded Warrior Project line of gear under the "Shop Collections" menu. In addition, a portion of every purchase from our website goes towards our support for our nations heroes through both monetary and product donations. We have (a) counter (...) that will keep track of the money and product that we have raised to date.

Why do we do this?
We are extremely passionate in our support for our Men and Women in uniform. We realize that we are able to lay our heads down on our pillows safely at night because of the work that they do. We must honor those who serve our country and protect our freedom. They come from all walks of life and from every part of our country. We really hope that our customers use our gear as a vehicle to show support for the members of our armed services and to help spread the word about the needs they have. Just as they have stood tall for our country, we must always stand by and support the Men and Women in uniform and their families.

Many of these brave Men and Women now need all of our help. That is why we have partnered with the Wounded Warrior Project. The struggles that our wounded soldiers face when they get back home from Iraq and Afghanistan are enormous. We are a small company, but we hope to do something big in raising awareness and dollars for our Men and Women who have sacrificed so much for us.“

Survival Straps are the real deal - super strong cord in case of emergency, but not so clunky you can't wear them on a daily basis. You can get them in a multitude of custom color combinations to suit your wardrobe or support your favorite cause or team. The stainless steel shackle is both tough looking and effective in keeping the bracelet on your wrist. These are really high quality and, should you ever have a real-life emergency situation, it may save your life. THEN you can get a new one for free! How cool is that? Even if you don't want to wear this everywhere, attaching one to your backpack, boat, or even just opting for the key fob will give you a measure of safety.

  1. That's a pretty cool idea.

  2. Quite helpful on the mean streets of Downers Grove and MacGyver approved I'm sure.

  3. Oh my gosh! I love these. I am totally checking them out. My husband and I are both huge outdoor enthusiasts. We have something similar, but not this cool or easy to wear - thank you!!
