Introduction: Ranger Bands (Rubber Bands on Steroids)

Ranger Bands (Rubber Bands on Steroids)
         These are basically really strong wide rubber bands that are nice for what ever you can think of. I use mine to help bundle some 550 cord that was previously tangled.

Step 1: Gather Materials

    These are the best things. I get web gear and pouches with elastic fabric "keeper" straps. I cut 'em off and replace with homemade ranger bands. Cheap, effective and intensely easy to make.

    I like recycling bicycle tubes for tie down straps and handlebar tape. I have found that soaking the rubber pieces overnight in a strong solution of Pine Sol and hot water, gets all the grease and chalk off of them.
