These cans have been used on military ranges across the country and are the same type of cans used in war zones across the world. These have been used by the US Military since 1942. The imperfections tell the story. Patinas of freedom. 

US Military ammo cans are constructed from rugged metal (carbon steel and aluminum). They feature a hinged lid with tension clamp down, a waterproof rubber seal on the lid and carrying handles.

Featuring a simple yet highly effective self-tightening loop design becomes stronger as more tension is applied ensures the knot won’t slip off during use.

It forms a loop that’s flexible enough to wrap around the most difficult to reach anchor points on your ATV/UTV to create a closed-loop connection for the SNAFU Kit kinetic recovery rope.

Soft shackles are a single piece construction made from ultra high performance fibers that are stronger than steel. Soft Shackles float in the water and are UV resistant.
