Traveling Abroad? Here’s Why You Need the Survival Strap
Any traveler knows the hassle of trying to find trust worthy and useful travel gear. If you want to jump into the backpacking lifestyle, there are a few things you’ll need to bring along: a very sturdy pack, filtered water bottle, and your destination’s phrase book. One additional accessory that can make or break your trip is a survival strap. Known for the amazing stories of being used in life threatening situations, survival bracelets are an all around functional tool. Worn on the wrist, the Survival Strap can be broken down and used in a variety of ways.
Let’s take a look at how wearing a Survival Strap on your next international excursion may help you have a successful and memorable trip.
Hang Up Your Clothes
Hostels make up a huge part of the traveler’s lifestyle. A real traveler can’t afford a fancy hotel, nor would they want to stay in one. When you can’t couch surf, a hostel is the place to go. While a hostel may have a washing machine, it will rarely have a drying machine. This goes double for places in Asia such as South Korea. You want to clean your clothes but how are you going to dry them? Take off your Survival Strap and extend it the length of your hostel room to form a drying line. It may not be glamorous but it will save you the embarrassment of being the smelly traveler.
Repair Your Travel Pack
Any veteran traveler can tell you about their first pack, how long it lasted, and the moment the straps finally gave out. There’s nothing worse than walking through the historic streets of Nuremberg or Warsaw and looking down at a pack that’s now on the ground. The solution is the Survival Strap. Drag your pack to the nearest sit down café and get to work. Remove the Survival Strap and unravel it. Simply thread it through your pack’s straps to create a makeshift shoulder harness. If you’re really crafty, you can break the survival bracelet down to its original threads, using them to sew the strap back.
You Never Know When…
Veteran travelers rarely follow guide books. This rebellious act often leads to turns down dark alleys and stomping through wild over growth to get to a hidden spot that may or may not exist. Veterans can also tell you that this rarely works out but makes for the best story. When you find yourself lost 5,000 miles from home, you never know what could happen. It’s best to be armed with a bracelet that can help out in times of need. Wearing the Survival Strap during your travels means you’ll always have a proven tool for times of emergency.
