Imagine this: you find yourself lost, deep in the jungles of Madagascar, being stalked by a group of lemurs. They trap you up against the Indian Ocean just outside of Ambohitralanana, and the lemur king challenges you to single combat. Desperate, you search your pockets for some rope to make a lasso to tie the little bugger up and teach him a lesson, but alas, you have nothing, and the lemur king rips off your pinky toes and he and the rest of the lemurs feast on them.
See? This could easily happen to you.
But if you had a Survival Strap on your watch, you’d be fine, simple as that.
Survival Straps are made out of 15 to 20 feet of 550 pound test military issue paracord, which you can unravel if necessary. They’ll fit on larger dive-style watches, but you can also get bracelets, anklets, belts, lanyards, a collar for your dog, a strap for your rifle, and other stuff like that. Each one is hand made, comes in a bunch of different colors, and the watch straps start at just over $20.
