For years guys have been using retaining bands (rubber bands) for a variety of chores but they’re an air item, designed to break under load. The folks at MRE had customers asking for the issue item but they aren’t really for what most guys use them for such as attaching kit, taking the rattle out of magazines and other gear, and securing items to your weapon’s stock.
It really doesn’t make sense to secure your equipment with something that’s meant to break. So MRE worked to develop an improved combat band. I’ve had a few for awhile now and used them for several application. They don’t stretch as much as a traditional rubber band but they are one hell of a lot beefier.
Constructed of an IR signature reducing formulated silicone, SOB Combat Bands are available in Black, Coyote, Foliage Green and Tan in packs of 3, 5 or 10.
