   What's the Best Watch Strap for EDC?

Two items familiar to many EDCers are watches and paracord. The former is a staple for telling time and delivering information. The latter, one of the most useful things you can add to your carry. It's not uncommon to see paracord used as a strap, but adding a full set of survival tools to a single package worn on your wrist? Now we're talking.

Ascent Survival out of St. Louis, MO understand the need to have essential tools close at hand but out of the way. With the Survivor, they've created a watch that gives you 5 handy outdoor tools for your weekend adventures, and paired it with a reliable movement in a rugged case for your daily timekeeping. The Survivor comes with a compass, emergency whistle, ferrocerium rod, and striker integrated into its 4.5' 550 paracord strap. Its movement is a Miyota 2145, a dependable quartz found in many popular Japanese brands. The movement is stored in a 48mm steel case water resistant up to 50 meters.

A reliable timepiece with useful tools — the Ascent Survivor meets the needs of the everyday excursion. There's plenty of time to back the Survivor itself or the survival strap separately at the Kickstarter link below.

No offense to them, but I checked out the campaign page and the video of them using the watch to light a fire was enough to turn me off. They obviously used an accelerant to get the fire started.
That's exactly what I was going to say Kyle. One spark of the ferro rod and all the tinder and surrounding gravel burst into flame. Very misleading.
