I think a lot of my friends are going to make fun of me for this one, and perhaps deservedly so. The Rattlerstrap Titan belt is a child of the “Everyday Carry” phenomenon, also known as “EDC”. It’s an American-made, titanium-buckle belt with a very fine-grained adjustment, which is nice when you’re trying to use the same belt for both denim and wool pants. But its raison d’etre is based on the rather ridiculous assumption that you will need one hundred feet of nylon paracord on short notice.
The product page makes the pitch. In the matter of a few minutes, you can turn your Rattlerstrap belt into between 90 and 120 feet of American-made paracord, depending on your waist size. What could you do with that paracord? Why, anything from tying off an amputated leg to supporting a 550-pound load! This list of 44 uses from a female survival enthusiast includes “Replace a broken bra strap” and “Tie up a bad guy”. But you don’t have to be a big-breasted “50 Shades Of Grey” reader to enjoy paracord.
For me, the primary virtue of this belt is that it won’t set off a metal detector and it looks like it will be very wear-resistant. But I’ll keep my mind open to other possibilities as well. And, of course, it’s 100% made it the USA, which is reason enough to get it!
