Strong, Useful, and Versatile Rubber Bands

Add these versatile elastic survival bands to your everyday carry and survival kits. 

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, joining the ranks of paracord, duct tape, and cable ties as smart survival tools.

We designed these bands to our specifications. Made of EPDM, the toughest rubber available, it resists cracking from heat, UV exposure, and saltwater.

Ranger Bands are available for your kits in 3 sizes:

Small (10 per bag) - 0.875” (Flat Length) x 0.563” (Wide) = Approx. 0.5” (Diameter)
Medium (10 per bag) - 1.25” (Flat Length) x 0.875” (Wide) = Approx. 0.7” (Diameter)
Large (10 per bag) - 2.5” (Flat Length) x 1” (Wide) = Approx. 1.5” (Diameter)

We also offer:

Combo Pack (30 total per bag) - 10 x Small, 10 x Medium, 10 x Large

Ranger Band uses are only limited by the needs and ingenuity of the person possessing them. Like us, we're sure you’ll find yourself putting them on every item you have laying around. The high "stretchability" and weather durability of these make them easy to carry and easy to use. Remember, each band can be cut thinner to multiply the quantity and uses.

You can use ranger bands for:

  • Rubberized Grip (Knives, Flashlights, Bottle Caps, Handles, Knobs)
  • Shock Absorber (Battery Chargers, Walkie Talkies, Bottles)
  • Coiling Strap (Cables, Cords, Webbing, Tarps)
  • Bundling Band (Tent Stakes, Camp Utensils, Keyring Tools)
  • Attachment Band (Ferro Rod on Knife Sheaths, Tourniquets)
  • Secure Closure (Altoids Style Tins, P-38/P-51 Can Opener, Lensatic Compasses)
  • Outer Seal Gasket (Boxes, Cans, Bottles)
  • Insulate from Heat or Cold (Little Pot-Holders in a Pinch)
  • Tinder, Burns with an Intense Long Lasting Flame (Exceptional for Trying to Light Damp or Wet Kindling)
  • Cut into odd shapes to accommodate custom applications/repairs

Bike tubes work but these are better.

Been used to using cut up bicycle inner tubes for this sort of thing. Nice to have dedicated bands in a much better material. Good to have different sizes..

Useful product

Glad I bought these to try as there is nothing like them in the UK. Really useful product with 101 uses. Great addition to my EDC and Bug Out kits.

Great supply and multi-use

I initially hesitated to purchase these. I have made my own ranger bands for years as we always did. this is so convenient and provides a great assortment of sizes. The large ones work quite well as a band around a small altoids box or similar box. I love the really small ones too.... I could never find an inner tube this small. I have used them for several things already, cutting them in thirds to make small VERY strong bands for anything.
