Many of you, I’m sure, have seen the ads on Facebook and other Internet sites, for Survival Straps. Survival Straps was founded by a man named Kurt Walchle from Florida back in 2006. Kurt’s company has been growing ever since and for good reason. Survival Straps are sold in the form of bracelets, necklaces, key fobs, or lanyards, and might be one of the best investments you could make. A Survival Strap is made of strong, military issue 550 paracord, which in the form of a bracelet, looks rugged, yet still stylish, but in an emergency, can be unraveled to give you about 10 ft. of paracord and shackle. This simple, little item can be what makes the difference between life and death for someone in a dangerous situation, or whenever a strong rope could help. Imagine having around your wrist a rope strong enough to hold 500+ pounds. This is no innocent bauble. The Survival Straps website has several stories from customers who have owned the bracelets and have had to deploy the paracord, but one of the most memorable is from a soldier who used the cord as a tourniquet on his leg while on duty as a sniper during a raid in Iraq. He credits the Survival Strap with saving his life.
With over 50,000 color combinations to choose from, there is something for everyone. There are also Harley-Davidson licensed bracelets for those interested in wearing the Harley logo. Survival Straps range in price from $15-$35 and also come with a guarantee. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to unravel the strap, all you need to do is send your story to Survival Straps and they will replace your strap for the cost of shipping only. Motorcyclists will find many uses for these straps and would be wise to keep one in their saddlebags, if not around their wrist at all times!
Incidentally, Survival Straps supports many foundations and charities, such as breast cancer research, Firefighters, EMS, Law Enforcement, and the military, in fact donating thousands of straps to the Wounded Warrior Project.
