WAZOO - Ranger Bands Survival EDC
WHAT ARE “RANGER BANDS”?
Wazoo Ranger Bands are super strong, super durable EPDM rubber bands, which are well-known for being useful in camping, hiking and survival activities. Ranger Bands are said to have been first adopted by Army “Rangers”, hence the name. These simple bands have been widely embraced by the public, especially outdoorsmen, as an all around must-have device to join the ranks such as paracord, duct tape, and cable ties as smart survival tools.
Wazoo began making ranger bands for their paracord bracelets years ago to secure tools and provide additional fire starting fuel.
Using the standard method of cutting up inner tubes, they quickly outgrew this method and wanted to introduce better quality and consistency. Wazoo found a USA manufacturer to make them to their specifications out of EPDM, which is the toughest rubber available. EPDM resists cracking from heat, UV exposure and saltwater. After selling over 25,000 of the “Small” sized bands, Wazoo thought it was time to branch out.
