Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet

If you’re looking to add an extra boost to your workout, then the Survival Strap Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet might do the trick.

I tested the bracelet for several weeks, including during endurance and strength training, and I experienced some measurable gains. Whether the benefit was due to the bracelet’s proprietary InBalance Technology or not, I can’t say. But I wouldn’t bet against this bracelet.

Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet Design

Attractive in an industrial-chic sort of way, the bracelet is handmade in the US with military spec 550 parachute cord. The cord is pliant and sturdy, so the bracelet maintains shape during use.  The paracord is waterproof and quick drying. It will not mildew and can be hand washed with soap as needed.

In case of emergency, the cord can be unraveled for life-saving duties. Suggested life-saving uses include making a tourniquet or towing device from the cord. I did neither in my testing (thankfully). Should such measures be necessary, Active Edge Gear will replace the bracelet free of charge, so long as you document the activity with pictures and give them your story.

The Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet has an attractive, patented, 3-hole clasp

The hardware on my bracelet is forged of shiny stainless steel that contrasts well with the black cord. The clasp is adjustable and has 3 holes with a breakaway pin for safety. It fits both my wrist and my husband’s wrist.

Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet Function

In my non-emergency routine, I tested the Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet while running, strength training, walking, and sleeping. 

I tested the Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet during strength and endurance training.

Step one involved clasping the device around my wrist. I’ll admit to some difficulty with the shackle at first, but that can be chalked up to user error.

The bracelet features InBalance Technology, a proprietary low-wave frequency feature designed to improve performance by increasing flexibility, strength, balance, oxygen intake, endurance and even REM sleep. The InBalance Technology works anytime it is in close contact with the body.

As the product insert states, the Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet “will not give you super human strength.” It can, however, give you a slight edge, particularly when working out.

The Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet helped me increase the number of pull-ups I was able to complete.

When I tested the bracelet during strength training, I was able to increase the amount of weight used in weight bearing exercises by as much as 10% to 15%. I also noticed up to a 20% improvement in the number of repetitions I was able to complete of exercises like pullups.

When worn while training, the Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet improved my running speed.

While running, I was able to shave off 5 to 10 seconds per mile.

It was difficult to measure any improvement in REM sleep.

Looking at those results, it’s hard to argue that the bracelet didn’t account for some of the improvements. Yet I maintain a healthy skepticism. I acknowledge the possibility of a placebo effect here. Having noted that, the source of the benefit may not be as important as the benefit itself.

Who Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet Is For

The Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet is for anyone looking for an unconventional way to boost exercise performance. The life-saving credentials of the device also suggest this bracelet is for hard-core adventurers who might need a tourniquet or extra towing line.

Sizing

According to , the Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet is available in 5”, 5.5”, 6”, 6.5”, 7”, 7.5”, 8”, and 8.5” length. The 6” measurement is an average female length, while 7” is an average male length. The clasp is available as an adjustable nylon 6-6 shackle or as an adjustable stainless steel shackle.

Colors

The Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet is available in 11 different colors that include: black, baby blue, navy blue, neon green, neon orange, neon pink, green, red, sand, white, and multicam camo. My test bracelet was black, which meant it could be dressed up if needed.

Included In The Box

My Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet arrived with a literature packet and owner manual.  They explain the functionality and benefits of the InBalance Technology.

Final Thoughts

The Active Edge Fishtail Bracelet (may have) provided me with an edge in physical performance. Whether my improvement was due entirely to InBalance Technology or in part to a placebo effect, I’m not sure. I suppose it doesn’t matter because, in either case, I experienced a boost to performance.

  • Love this product. I have more focus, energy..My job requires a lot of stair climbing each day. I have more bounce in my steps! I have more drive to push myself further. It's true, I get a better nights sleep. Thanks to Survival Straps to add this technology to their products! Looking forward to the sleep shirt!

  • I'M A STROKE SURVIVOR WITH EXTREME SPASTICITY IN THE LEFT LEG AND LEFT ARM & HAND, LEAVING ME WITH IMPAIRED WALKING BECA-- USE OF THE LEFT LEG AND NO -- USE OF THE LEFT HAND!!! CAN IT HELP ME?

    • We don't sell the bracelets at ActiveGearReview.com, but we always recommend reaching out to the brand or retailer you purchased the product from.

  • Ordered this bracelet to see if it would help me with knee pain. I was about to get another shot of cortisone, knowing my doctor hinted at knee surgery. Then I thought I'd give this bracelet a try.....I've worn it straight through (except showering) for about 6 weeks....I've never experienced anything like this. My knee pain is gone...I'm doing things I couldn't before...going for walks❤️it and have been sleeping better. 3 weeks ago I purchased the sleep shirt and bracelet for my husband, who experiences pain on a daily basis. He has noticed a remarkable difference. I'm so glad there is an alternative to pain medication. If anyone is wondering about buying this...don't hesitate...it WORKS

    • Hi Sunny,

      We are not the manufacturer of said bracelet. We are a gear review website, that tests and reviews different types of active gear and the Active Edge Bracelet happened to be one of those pieces. Our website name and the website of the bracelet company are very similar.
      After doing a bit of "googling", it appears that the company that produce the Active Edge Bracelet has shut their website down (activeedgegear.com). 

  • Just wondering......I purchased four of the bracelets from Active Edge Gear and two of the medal pins are broken. Any way I can order just two pins to replace the broken ones so that the family can use the bracelets we have?
