About Us

My name is Desmond and I am the founder of Armstrong Survival Gear. I started this company in August of 2011 after a couple years of planning. Being an avid outdoorsman all my life, I always carried some sort of rope or parachute cord on me at all times. I understood how important cordage is. Cordage is to a survivalist what duct tape is to a handyman, it’s very valuable. For years I made things out of 550 parachute cord and gave them as gifts to family members. I made gun slings out of 550 para cord for my brothers long before you could find them on the internet for sale. Their love of these products caused me to think seriously about starting this company and making these great products available to everyone.  I feel that this company and our products have a lot to offer to the survivalist community and to all who enjoy the outdoors at some point in their life. These are products that may just save your life.


Our company strives for quality! We want to make the best gear out there and we are always trying to improve. We want input from our customers. Tell us how we can make or do something better and hey it may even get you a free piece of gear, if we implement your idea!

We pride ourselves in the fact that our products are all made with American made parts and that they are all hand woven right here in America. You can trust in the strength of our para cord. Most of the cord bought overseas does not hold up even close to the 550lb test of the American made cord. So think twice before buying 550 para cord products that say made in China on them, I wouldn’t trust them with my life when it counts.
