We are outdoor lovers who spend as much of our time as possible canyoneering, rock climbing, skiing, snowboarding, etc. Sometimes packing safety gear is a real pain. So we came up with a solution. Belts, wrist bands, and other gear made with para cord rated at 550 lbs so it is strong enough to cinch up a broken piece of equipment. If you get in trouble you simply undo the gear. With our gear you'll always have a backup.
