The RE Factor Tactical Operator Band is the first band designed to fit the mission needs of Special Operations Personnel. The Operator Band is not your typical paracord “survival” bracelet and is designed to give you components you could count on in need. Designed by a Special Forces S.E.R.E Level C graduate the components included in the Operator Band are designed to give you everything you need in a survival situation to include fire, food procurement and the building of shelter.
In addition each Operator Band comes with a hidden handcuff key in the buckle to allow the user to escape from illegal restraint. The hidden handcuff key can be removed multiple times for practice and the attached buckle allows the keys to be easily separated if needed. We use 80lb Test Braided Fishing Line which can double to make a snare or shelter. We include an 18″ 45lb Test Snare Wire that comes with a coating making it water resistant. The end comes pre-looped for quick set up of the snare when needed. The attached fire starter is made of ferrocerium which burns at over 3000 degrees to help catch tinder on fire when needed.
We also offer an optional add-on Suunto Clipper Compass. The Suunto Clipper Compass offers an illuminating bezel, rotating declination dial and waterproof encasing. The compass can be easily removed and reattached to other items as needed. We chose the Suunto Clipper Compass due to its accurate design and ability to set declination for navigation both during the day and night.
Follow the steps below to determine your wristband size:

***Please note some customers experience slight shrinkage of their bands when it becomes wet. We recommend purchasing a size that will be slightly larger to allow the band to expand and shrink through the life cycle of the band.
