Ranger Bands are super strong rubber bands that are well known for being useful in a variety of applications. They are said to have been first adopted by US Army “Rangers” hence the name.
These simple bands have been widely embraced by outdoorsmen across the world as an all-round must-have piece of equipment to join the ranks with paracord, duct tape and cable ties.
WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR…….
Ranger Band uses are only limited to your imagination!! Like us, I am sure you will find yourself putting them into your EDC and Bugout bags as they are so handy to have. Remember, each band can be cut thinner lengthwise to make multiple smaller bands.
Here are some ideas
