Summary

The Operator Band takes the traditional paracord survival band to the next level. It has items hidden throughout that make it a TRUE survival band rather than the traditional one sold in stores, made by some Chinese sweatshop kid.

Pros

  • Bracelet allows you to start fire, build shelter, procure food
  • Comfortable wear
  • Looks awesome
  • Practical

I purchased the RE Factor Tactical Operator Band about a month ago and couldn't be happier. The bracelet looks like most other paracord bands that are the craze these days but has a number of hidden items that are essential for every survival situation.  

The band comes with 12' of paracord, 30' of fishing line, 18" of snare wire, a fishing hook, a handcuff key buckle, a flint fire starter and a P51 can opener.  

The band itself was designed by a Green Beret after attending the Special Forces Survival, Escape, Resistance and Evasion course and spending years down range.  What's better is that each band is handmade in the USA by a veteran, which is something that is hard to find these days.  

Everyday I put on the Operator Band and even though I haven't had to use any of the components in it yet, it is comforting to know that regardless of what other items I choose to carry with me I can at least make fire, build shelter and procure food. I think this should be standard issue to every soldier in the military and should be in every survival kit.  

Bottom line, 100% worth the purchase!

Loks like a neat bracelet. Pretty useful. Anything colored black that has the words Tactical and Operator in it should sell very well to the millitary/police/mercenary wannabe crowd.

Summary

Light weight, well made, and purpose built with the military member in mind.

Pros

  • Light
  • Compact
  • Multifunction

Cons

  • The brain trust at the TSA may take your striker away

As a military member the more function I can get out of gear the better. Generally speaking I carry about 85 pounds of ultra lightweight gear, so any way I can downsize is a big deal to me. I used to carry a "survival tin" that had everything I need in an altoids case, but now I just use this bad Larry and save the space.
