Individually handcrafted and made in America, Survival Straps® gear is more than a fashion statement – in a time of need, it represents a lifeline around your wrist. The company is now producing a licensed Harley Davidson line.
The history of Harley Davidson stretches back more than a century and its riders know well the lure of the open road. They know just as well to expect the unexpected and that unpredictability is a very predictable component of their favorite pursuit. Should an emergency arise, Survival Straps® bracelets, made from 550-pound test military spec parachute cord, unravel and double as a durable multi-purpose rope of varying lengths of up to 24 feet, depending on the style.
An ‘Ah-Hah’ Moment
President Kurt Walchle founded Survival Straps® in 2007 and built the first piece of gear at his kitchen table. Based in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, the company now operates out of a state-of-the-art 20,000sf shop with 66 employees, each and every one an expert craftsman.
“What has happened since then is simply amazing. As my wife and I saw the first reactions to the gear we created and our vision of what we wanted to do, we knew we had something special. We build gear that is tough, stylish, a blast to wear, and can help people when they really need help,” said Walchle on the company web site.
What should the buyer of a distinctive Harley Davidson bracelet expect beyond a wrist bauble? Most importantly, a tried and tested product that may help you out of an unforeseen emergency situation.
Top-end models feature a stainless steel shackle that allow the wearer to adjust the bracelet. If deployed in an emergency event, the company will replace your bracelet free of charge.
Harley Davidson bracelets come in black, black and orange, or pink in a half-dozen styles all emblazoned with the iconic Harley logo on the front dog tag. The bracelets can be personalized with any event the owner desires to commemorate, from the birth of a child to showing support for a member of the military. They retail for between $19.95 and $35.95 depending on the size and customization options. Survival Straps® also offers companion key fobs, neck ID lanyards, gear tags and necklaces, each with the Harley Davidson crest and colors.
The company has designed specialty product lines or servicemen and women, police, firefighters and EMS workers and their supporters, with colors coordinated to each field of service.
