Ragnar Bands are Delta2Alpha Design’s take on “Ranger Bands”.
Ranger Bands were originally made from bicycle inner tubes cut to make rings. Due to the stiffness of the rubber of the inner tube and the small size the applications were somewhat limited, and they could be a bit difficult to use In some of the applications.
The Ragnar Bands aren’t a rebranded off-the-shelf product, but rather custom made to specifications, from the same high grade material as D2A’s Resistance Bands. These are both longer lasting than the standard EDPM style on the market and far stretchier than the old school slice of bicycle innertube.

Nice bands. I keep them with hunting and hiking gear. Always something that needs to be held together. Also found that while sitting in a deer stand they are great for finger exercises. sturdier than even heavy rubber bands

The ranger bands are very useful and seem to have been manufactured instead of being cut from an intertube. They are flexible and their use is only limited to your imagination.

Excellent little bands, put my first one on my small TOPS fixed blade. Makes it so much easier to grab quickly. Also carry a backup on my wrist at all times as well. Tons of uses for these little guys.
