User Review: RE Factor Tactical Operator Band
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $49.95
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.
- Bracelet allows you to start fire, build shelter, procure food
- Comfortable wear
- Looks awesome
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!
