The Buckley Fire Straps keep you safe and stylish

Buckley Fire Starter Straps

You really never know when a disaster is going to strike. No one walks out their front door thinking they’ll be swept off their feet and go onto an adventure, but it does happen, and you have to be as ready as you can. While we don’t want to look like we’re expecting the end of the world, we do want to be prepared for whatever life can throw at us.

If you are the type of person who wants to have casually planned for all possible situations, then these Buckley Fire Straps could be a wonderful addition to your just-in-case gear. These are Italian leather watch straps with high-quality linen stitching and stainless steel springboard tubes, but the real hidden treasure is in a place you otherwise wouldn’t notice. This has a magnesium fire starter strip and steel striker, and both were built seamlessly into the watchband.

The end of the metal buckle is the fire starter strip, and the steel striker is on the end of the opposing strap. This can work on just about any watch, and comes in sizes 20, 22, and 24mm. You’ll be able to choose from black or brown, and it will cost you $59.95. These are a bit pricey, but it’s neat to have a little extra functionality from an item you might need to purchase already as a replacement on your watch. If you still wear that sort of thing that is.
