The Operator Band is the first band designed to fit the mission needs of Special Operations personnel. Created by a Special Forces S.E.R.E Level C graduate the components of the band are intended to provide everything needed when encountering a survival situation.

Each Operator Band comes standard with seven different survival tools. This includes a essential items such as: removable/reusable hidden handcuff key in the buckle for escape from illegal restraint,  80lb test braided fishing line used to make a snare or shelter, 18″ 45lb test water snare wire,  and ferrocerium fire starter that burns at over 3000 degrees.

Upgrades to the Operator Band can be applied with the addition of LiveFire® Paracord and/or a Suunto® Clipper Compass. The LiveFire Paracord is an additional strip of cord down the center of the band that is internally coated with a flammable chemical agent. The Clipper Compass offers an illuminating bezel, rotating declination dial and waterproof encasing, detachable from the band when needed. The accuracy of the compass allows for the ability to set declination for easy day and night navigation.

    Great piece of equipment!!

    I’ve been making my own paracord bracelets for a while, but with all the extra kit that comes with the Operator Band I couldn’t resist. I am impressed that the band remains compact despite all the features. I just wish it came with instructions for how to reassemble with fresh cord in case I ever need to unravel it in the field. I wanted to add the compass but I have read reviews on other sites about the bezel coming off or the clip coming loose. Potential FOD hazard if you choose to go that route. Overall great product and I would happily buy again if this one ever gets used.

    Awesome piece of kit. Never realized how useful it is to have a compass available on wrist all the time. Only caveat is that I’m not a huge guy (170lb, 5’10”) and the large size is fairly snug on my wrist. Hope it will loosen with time.
