Survival Stories: Ed

We love to hear stories from our customers who have used their Survival Straps to save their hides in an emergency! Have you used your Survival Straps® Gear? Write an email and send a picture or two over to us: Remember, if you use your gear and share your story, we’ll replace the gear for free!

Here’s a great story from our friend Ed:

On a bike ride today one of my pedals broke apart, about to fall off 12 miles from my car. I have a few Survival Straps, today I was wearing my fishtail black strap. I partially unwound it and used it to tie the pedal on my bike, saving me a 3 hour walk back to my car in the summer heat. I wear them about 80% of the time…now it will be 100%. Thanks for making a great product and supporting Wounded Warrior Project.

Survival Straps Survival Stories

A few months ago we posted Kelly Mixon’s story on our Facebook Page. Kelly was a dear friend of Survival Straps and one of our American Heroes who was killed in action in Afghanistan last year. Today we had the immense privilege to meet Kelly’s dad, Air Force Master Sargent Harold Bargeron, and give him the very first Military Memorial Collection Survival Bracelet in memory of his son.  We are so thankful for Master Sargent Bargeron’s service, sacrifice, and the ultimate sacrifice his son Kelly made so that we might be safe and free. Survival Straps seeks to support our American men and women in uniform. How will you show your support?
