RE Factor Operator Band in Action

Valentine’s Day gift idea. Send this link to HH6 or your girlfriend.

Various Kit Up! authors have discussed RE Factor gear before – here’s a quick look at the Operator Band in operation, used to start a fire. Presumably the Survival Band would function similarly.

The Tactical Operator Band was developed by a Green Beret SERE Level C graduate and is made in the USA by a US Army combat veteran. It has a removable P51 can opener and flint rod (which can be used without damaging the remainder of the band); the flint can be used as a sink weight for the hook and line, The bracelet is built of 12′ of 550 (Para-) cord and features 30′ of 80lb fishing line, a #8 fishing hook and a handcuff key.

    I really like these survival bands and belts and stuff but does anyone make one out of 5mm accessory cord -7mm rescue rope? Basically something strong enough you could climb or rappel with it if needed?

    Ah, the P51 can opener. Once descibed to me as “the only cost-efficient thing the army ever made.”

  • Sure it’s a P51? Would of thought the smaller P38 would of worked better size wise.

    That handcuff key better be easy to get to with your hands cuffed behind your back…Better rehearse that maneuver before having to do it for real…And, if you don’t already have a P-38 on your key ring, you’re WRONG.

    Because you never know when you might come across that random can of tuna in a survival situation.

  • Given the Ocean flow from Japan to our fisheries up Alaska way that random can of Tuna may glow in the dark.
