From Gearward founder Mark Greenman:
I've used ranger bands for many years now, and I find they are up there with duct tape and cordage in terms of versatility. There's really so many things you can do with a really strong rubber band.
While ranger bands have served me very well over the years, cutting up old bicycle inner tubes became a hassle, so I decided to work with a rubber band factory to see if there was a better option. After quite a bit of experimentation with sizes and rubber mixtures, we ended up creating a really rugged rubber band.
What sets them apart is that they are made out of double-thick EPDM rubber, and designed specifically for functioning in the outdoors. EPDM has a working temperature from -50 to 300 degrees, works well with water, and does not break down from exposure to sunlight the way normal rubber bands do. Not only do they hold the kit securely in place, but the Ranger Bands also serve as an excellent source of tinder. Because rubber is non-absorbent, it's completely waterproof, and the extra-thick bands burn for 3 minutes. Overall, I think you'll find Ranger Bands to be a versatile addition to your preps, and you will be surprised by how many ways they can come in handy. Simply put, they're the toughest rubber bands available.
Ranger Bands are Made in the USA and sold as a pack of 20.
