Military Grade Rubber Bands

Sure, you've turned rubber bands into weapons of classroom destruction in the past, but the flimsy elastics of your youth have nothing on Ranger Bands. Made from EPDM Rubber—strong enough to be used as a roofing material—these field grade companions are specifically designed to help you navigate the great outdoors.

Often used to ensure survival kits stay closed and dry, Ranger Bands are the most durable rubber band you can get; they stay fully functioning at temperatures from -50 to 300 degrees.

And in a pinch, if you need kindling, they'll burn for a solid three minutes to help you get a fire going.

Pick up a pack of 20 for $10.00 from Gearward and feed your inner survivor.
