Getting ‘strapped’ not always a bad thing

We noticed them a little over a year ago. Thought maybe they were a teenage trend, like those plastic bracelets. Survival straps. Then, our pal, Brent Lawrence, of the National Wild Turkey Federation, mentioned that one of the clinics for women at the upcoming convention in Nashville will feature making survival bracelets. So, we decided to do a little snooping around and look at what we found? The American dream, a family-owned company that makes survival straps and started (where else?) on their kitchen table. SurvivalStraps!

The concept? Handmade, paracord bracelets that can be unwound in emergencies. Think tourniquets, rope, bootlace, etc. And then, think about not only making a quality product, but donating thousands (more than $300,000 in 2011) to the Wounded Warrior Project!

We’re going to reach out to SurvivalStraps. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out their philosophy and of course, their products.

    At the March 30th WITO event at Camp Gieger in St. Joseph we will be instructing and making survivor belts! This will have enough para cord to do anything you may need while out and about in the outdoors and they are a good looking belt as well!

    I love these straps! Extremely useful AND tasteful (they look good).
