Here’s a great story from one of our customers, Eric, who used his Survival Strap to save the day while on a rafting trip down the Delaware River. Got a story? Email it to us with pictures of how your gear was used: stories@survivalstraps.com!

Dear Survival Straps,

Two weeks ago I linked up with some friends from college as we all got together with our girlfriends to do a rafting trip (unguided) down the Delaware River. Looking back on it now, we were grossly unprepared. The mood was very relaxed and everyone was having a great time. That is, until our raft hit a few rapids and split apart on top of a rock in the middle of the river. After examining the damage for the next 5 or 10 minutes, a nasty, fast moving thunder storm rolled in with Lightning bolts flashing across the morning sky. I unwrapped my Firefighters survival bracelet and began to MacGyver two sections of the raft back together. She wasn’t pretty, but she was much better than she was and it held up long enough for us to book it out of there before any of us got struck out in the open.

Thank you survival straps for keeping my friends safe!
