As you well know, the market for survival gear has increased significantly. Knowing what to do in case of an emergency is a key piece of knowledge, especially during the times we live in today. While knowledge is power, it sometimes isn’t enough to survive, you most likely need the proper gear and tools to get you through.
While it’s impossible to forecast the next disaster or even minor “inconvenient” situation, one can at lease prepare ourselves with common tools that be used in a variety of situations. However, as we all know Every Day Carry (EDC) can weigh you down. So how do we prioritize our EDC without overloading our pockets, belts, etc. with too much gear on a daily basis? One solution, Superesse Straps, a company owned and operated by Wesley Superesse a former US Army Special Operations Command soldier, and current TRADOC Army instructor and law enforcement officer.
Wesley has refined and continues to improve how he can pack as much useful survival gear into a paracord bracelet. He began this venture as a hobby while in the Army, making 550 paracord bands for fellow soldiers. As word caught on, so did the demand.
There are multiple companies and varieties of paracord bracelets, but few have as much utility as Wesley’s. One look at his website www.superessestraps.com and you’ll see that these are not your everyday bracelets.
Superesse straps offers the ability to customize their bracelets with tools such as snare traps, fire starters, water purification tablets and signals, to name just a few. If you get overwhelmed and cannot decide what to put in your bracelet, Wesley offers a line of pre-designed straps such as the “Bug Out Bracelet”, the “SERE Sidekick” and the “First Responder Strap”, for example.
