What is a HIP Band and what does it do?
The HIP Band is many things all wrapped into one. It represents a choice to live a life of Honor, Integrity, and Purpose. It’s a survival tool worn on your wrist. It’s a reminder of a HIP way to live.
HOW DO I USE A HIP BAND?
In a crisis, a HIP Band can be deployed to secure shelter, tether faulty gear, repair footwear – just about anything for which a large emergency supply of paracord and string can be used.
Paracord is made up of a strong 550 pound cord. Each inch in a HIP Band is equivalent to 11 inches of 550 pound military-grade paracord. Each cord has 7 inner yams (strands) of string that are 35 pound test each (plus the sheath) and each inner yam (string) has three strands at 10 pounds of tinsel strength.
EXAMPLE: A HIP Band for an average sized male wrist has 8 inches of woven paracord, which breaks down to:
· 8” x 11” = 88 total inches of cord. 7.33 feet of strong 550 pound paracord.
· 7.33 feet x 7 yams (string) = 51.33 feet of string (plus the outside sheath).
· 51.33 feet x 3 strands of string = 154 feet of usable material on your wrist at all times.
You hope to never need it, but it’s good to know it’s there if you do.
While a HIP Band can save your life in an emergency, its bigger purpose is to spread the message of living your life with Honor, Integrity, and Purpose. Together we can make a difference.
Get HIP. Live HIP.
