Whether you're a civilian in this wild world or a soldier in the field, your motto should be “Always be Prepared.” Survival Straps® make it easy to be prepared by simply carrying or wearing our paracord gear at all times. What are your options? Read on!

A little about our paracord…our materials are the real deal! We use AUTHENTIC 550 test military spec paracord and marine-grade stainless steel shackles made right here in America. They are extremely durable and strong. The intact paracord can pull or lift 550 pounds and the shackle is load bearing. This makes it great for towing, using as a tie down, or using as a safety rope.  Upon closer inspection, you’ll find there is an outer sheath and seven inner strands.  The strands can be extracted from the sheath and used as string for such needs as stitching, dental floss, or even fishing line.

All our paracord gear is built with the intention to be used as a survival tool if needed.  It’s ready to be deployed and used at a moment’s notice. That’s why our gear comes with a "If You Use It, We'll Replace It" guarantee.  If you use your Survival Strap in an emergency situation, send us your story and a picture of how it was used to stories@survivalstraps.com. We will send you a new one for the cost of shipping.

We offer so many product options! Here are just a few:


The Tactical Fist Lanyard looks like a cool decoration to most people. However, it can also be used as a very effective self-defense tool if you need to defend yourself from an attacker. The fist portion contains a weighted stainless steel ball that packs a serious punch when swung at anything - great for defending against an attacker. It is always good to have a plan, and have something, other than your bare hands, to defend yourself. The Tactical Fist fits perfectly in this role. 


The Regular Survival Bracelet™ with Para-Claw features a 1.5” hawkbill knife blade ground from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with a stealthy BlackStoneTM finish. The blade is integrally molded to a tough nylon guard that keeps the blade locked away securely until the safety is intentionally clicked to get the blade out. Once deployed, the paracord bracelet forms the knife handle. Handle grooves and jimping on the thumb ramp ensure a positive grip at all times. The patent pending sheath system locks the knife securely for immediate deployment in any situation.


The New Paracord Hat Band is an awesome addition to add to your favorite hat. These are great for sun hats, Tilley hats, boonie hats, cowboy hats or just about any wide brimmed hat you like to wear on your head. They are fully adjustable in size, come in all of our colors and have options to add skulls or bullet casings to the back of the hat band.


Survival Straps Paracord Apple Watch Strap Bands are awesome and very similar to our tactical straps for the Garmin Tactix/Fenix and other watches. They are built with approximately 12' of authentic military paracord. We use the highest quality stainless steel Apple Watch Adapters. This gives the strap a perfect fit to your Apple Watch and looks like it came right out of the Apple factory. Turn your Apple Watch into a tactical beast! Available in several styles!


So many patterns, so many colors, so little time! Select from a large collection of custom bracelets. Wear as a statement piece, stack them for a stylish look, or have your gear embedded with Active Edge technology and experience the amazing health benefits.

And there’s more! All our gear can be built in our over 40 paracord color options.  Customize your gear and make it your own. ALWAYS BE PREPARED!
