Welcome to Survival Straps. Prepping is something that everyone must do to prepare themselves for any impending disaster. And since you are here, you know that. However, if the thought of prepping frightens you, you are not alone. And that is why Survival Straps is here to help you walk through the prepping process.
One of the reasons you are so afraid of prepping is that deep down, you already know how unprepared you are for any disaster that can quickly happen. Here is the thing. You realize that you don’t have forever to remain unprepared. The longer you wait, the more stressed out you will be, which leads to sleeplessness and other significant problems. Therefore, the fear you experience is a good thing.
The Survival Straps experts are here to help you as they will recommend the best survival kit and product guides, survival situation guides, as well as those hands-on reviews. The team knows what high-quality survival products you require to get you through any disaster that can unexpectedly come. To learn more about the Survival Straps experts, go to the About Us page.

Kyle Lee was born and raised in Huston, Texas, and has spent his life since early on in childhood, participating in anything wildlife-related.
He began learning what he could do to prepare himself for any disaster. He explored what he could do to survive if a tornado, hurricane, earthquake, wildfire, or flooding happened.
Kyle also studied nuclear weapons, EMP blasts, and solar flares and learned what to do to survive if a human-made disaster happened. Over time, his interests in survival and prepping became his life and passion. That is when he decided to establish Survival Straps, and is the Chief Editor as well.
Kyle found the survivalist and outdoor experts through forums and social media to contribute to the site’s high-quality content.
Isaac McMahon was born and raised in the outskirts of New Orleans, Louisiana, and as a child, he experienced the destruction of his home due to flooding. That touched him for life as his family had to do what they could to survive and did not prepare themselves to deal with such a tragic event that ruined his home.
After Isaac retired from the force, he opened up a military store on the outskirts of New Orleans.
The store sold tactical and survival equipment. As a licensed firearm dealer, he sold various weapons as he did cater mostly to the military and anyone in law enforcement.
Isaac ran the store for a decade and decided to close it down, as he is retired. Today other than being a valued contributor to Survival Straps, Isaac lives as an empty nester retiree with his wife, and two dogs.
Dan Gregory grew up in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and his family often went on camping trips as he developed fond memories of life in the outdoors. During his childhood, he spent much time developing survivalist skills and relied on his primitive skills to get him through. He grew to realize that disasters can loom at any time, and those survival skills and prepping were invaluable.
As a young adult, Dan was drafted into the American Army and served many years in the military. That experience only sharpened his survival skills.
Dan is now a military veteran living in Boulder, Colorado, who decided to go to cooking school and work at a restaurant as a cook. When Dan is not working or contributing excellent content to Survival Straps, he spends plenty of time with his family by having exciting outings.

Amanda Jennings was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and she always enjoyed camping when she was a child. Over time, she developed a strong interest in martial arts, firearms, survival education, and gear.
