The most rugged paracord watch bands available, PERIOD. Make it rugged!

13 years in the Marine Corps with 3 deployments to Iraq, I went through a lot of hard-core sports watches. When I added in an outdoor life style with downhill skiing, open water swimming, hunting, backpacking, shooting, and camping, I broke countless watch bands. I watched as the salt water, extreme hot and cold weather, chlorine, sand, oils, and sweat ate the factory rubber bands turning them into gummy, stiff, dry, cracked worthless junk that the slightest nick would turn into completely broken at the worst possible time,.Resulting in lost watches in the field or a trip around town to find a new band that would fit. Finally after watchmakers started using proprietary bands that cost half of what you pay for the watch, I said "ENOUGH"!
I decided to find a quality band-maker to fit my Sunnto Ambit 3. After days of searching and reading through forums, I found, that there were none. So I made my own and offered those on the forums looking to replace their bands. The more they asked for my bands, the more their friends and family wanted them.
Next thing I knew, I had made a thousand bands! Shortly after, I enlisted Mrs. Gunny to help fill orders part time and made a trip to our local Chamber of Commerce for a business license. A few thousand bands later and Mrs Gunny has quit her job to work with Rocker Locker, full time.

Our goal; do it better, make it better looking, and sell the best! We are not the only ones out there selling bands. From mass produced overseas factories to part time hobbyist. A quick look at the photos will often show you loose weaves, uneven loops, inconsistent thickness or just plain sloppy work.

Our bands are hand-crafted to order. Every time. Nothing is off the shelf or reused. Every band is made for a specific watch, a specific wrist, and our customer's style and color choices. We do not rush for quantity over quality. When you get one of our bands, you are getting hand-crafted, customized gear to compliment your watch in both form and function. We stand by all of our products proudly.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

These are FULLY custom made each to the buyers request for size, colors, scheme, and style. So have fun and use your imagination! Follow all the instructions for ordering.

UNIVERSAL, are SEMI-custom, color and style are chosen by you. We get requests for every watch known but we can't buy them on and have them on hand for crafting, measuring, and testing. So if you like the bands and have a different watch then this is your option. They are available for cheaper because they don't include any brackets or lugs and they are of standardized size, however, that means it's on you to MEASURE and ask questions before ordering. There will be a $15.00 return and exchange fee for: returns or exchanges.

Sizing details

Follow the size instructions in the listing before you order. READ! ASK QUESTIONS if you have any before ordering.

For UNIVERSAL FIT, follow the size instructions in the listing before you order. READ! ASK QUESTIONS if you have any before ordering.

What color options do I have?

ANYTHING YOU WANT!!! The pictures are examples only. You can choose any colors you want. Etsy only allows for 5 pictures so its really hard to show all the hundreds of colors paracord comes in. Basically, if you can think it or find it in a Crayon box I have or can get it! Just include at checkout....

Sides:
Middle:
Accent:

These can be all one color or different colors, refer to listing descriptions or ask if you have any questions.

If I have messaged you about a specific design or color in the days or weeks before I order, should I still include it again in the order notes at checkout?

Yes!! I can't remember every conversation I have and then recognise an individual goofy user name when an order is made days or weeks later, lol. Always include your choices....

Sizing details

Always measure the circumference of your actual wrist. I don't care what setting you usually wear your current factory or aftermarket band on. Use a measuring tape or a string or shoelace around the portion of your wrist you like to wear your watch. Make sure the tape is touching your bare skin without gaps all the way around but not tight as to indent or squeeze the skin. Good rule of thumb you can say is to measure at the same comfortable tension you wear your watches now. Once you have measured the bare wrist, add 1/4" to the size, this is what you send me at checkout. Raw bare skin measurement + 1/4"= Band Size.

For UNIVERSAL FIT, follow the sizing instructions in the listing description.

If I don't read the items description or shipping details, or ordering instructions and therefore don't include them at checkout, will you be able to read my mind or correctly guess what options I prefer?

No, if you don't include all the information as described in the ordering instructions, your order will sit in my que and be skipped over until you answer my constant request messages for the missing information/request specifics. I will not begin your band until you have specifically specified to me what it is your heart desires.

Custom and personalized orders

The standard models: Cobra, Trilobite, and fishtail come with the silver metal adjustable shackle. You can INCLUDE IN THE CHECKOUT NOTES if you would like the locking plastic buckle instead. You may also upgrade to the heavy duty all black metal alloy adjustable shackle for $6.00.
The Premium models: GunnyHEX, GunnyX, and GunnyTrax come standard with a heavy duty all black metal alloy adjustable shackle. OR you can include in the NOTES AT CHECKOUT if you would rather the locking plastic buckle.

Custom and personalized orders

The locking plastic buckle is not adjustable and if you like to wear a tighter then average watch it maybe uncomfortable depending on activity, body hydration, water retention of your body from day to day. The shackles will have bout a 1/2" worth of adjustment for comfort.

If I have't measured my wrist can I guess what size I am and you'll still be able to make a custom band that exactly fits my wrist perfectly?

No. No. Super No. Don't guess 7.5" and then say its too small and when I ask you to return it for a replacement and include a second wrist measurement send me 8.5"..... No kidding it will be too small. Actually measure your wrist and include the size at checkout. ***NOTE: This is not to discourage impulse buying or late night irresponsible spending... Just include the correct size later in a message to seller***

I've read all the item descriptions, details, specifications, and FAQ and I still have questions. Should I just blindly order or give up?

NO! Send a message to me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Remember: "There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions".

I found a paracord design on the interwebs you don't offer in your listings I really really like. Do you take requests?

I'm always up for trying something new. I've done lots of different designs, some work really well on a short two piece band, some look horrible some don't work. Send me a message and we'll see if its realistic. It may take longer but if I agree I'll never charge more than the premium bands.

Custom and personalized orders

There is no warehouse of shelves stocked with ready to ship bands in every possible color scheme. EVERY band is made to order from scratch to the buyers individual hopes and dreams.

I understand you are a former United States Marine, but your Wife and business partner is not and only human, thus still faulable . If there is a problem or mistake with my order will you work to fix her rare discrepancy?

Yes, just send us a message and we will correct anything she messed up on those very rare occasions. You maybe charged a fee for exchange if for example, you send us a request for a 7.5" band and then complain that it's too small when you receive it. When we ask you to re-measure your wrist you request a 8.75" band.... obviously your grossly incompetent and should have your parent or guardian help use the tape measure....... OR YOU GUESSED. There is a cost for time, supplies, and shipping. We can work with the mistakes, reckelssnessness will not be tolerated and adjudicated with extreme prejudice. To avoid punishment: MEASURE CAREFULLY!!

Are you staring at your Etsy account right now waiting for the next customer message with a product question to come in?

Glad you asked: No, I work graveyard US pacific time. So most days I am sleeping I typically get back to you before or after work or on breaks as soon as I can usually after dark and unfortunately con not respond before I wake up. But please send a message I'll respond as soon as I see it. I don't like sitting on a full inbox.

Why are your bands a little more expensive then others I've seen?

Because they work and they look Gooood. Quality takes time and I won't send it out if I don't like the way it came out. Quality takes more time, even if I have to throw it away and start over. The idea is you won't have to budget for and buy another crummy factory or after market band every 6mo to a year. Every watch I advertise for I actually have or it's equivalent, so fit and feel is spot on.... And these watches aren't cheap! I didn't invent the weaves but I only offer the styles that hold up to abuse, fit the best, and look clean and slick.

For a less expensive option is the our new UNIVERSAL FIT. They are SEMI-custom, and are not guaranteed to fit all watches. Sizing options are standardized and you are responsible for the math.

If I didn't include all the required specifics in my order at checkout and ignore your messages requesting the information, should I be surprised if my order is eventually cancelled and refunded?

No

I can't help but be enthralled with your amazing work and craftsmanship. But I have a watch that is not mentioned in any of your listings. Should I just order a random existing listing from your shop and sneak in a mention of a completely different model in the notes at checkout?

No. If you have a watch that is not listed in MY shop, message me before purchasing and I will check to make sure if it is possible.

Universal Fit, are now available. They are just as strong as the custom but some options have been standardize like sizing and shackle. If you want a band for a watch that is not available in a FULLY-CUSTOM listing make sure you evaluate to ensure your watches case attachments are large enough for the paracord thickness (+/- 1.7mm) and are of a reasonably obvious geometry to work with our bands. Simple suggestion, use yours eyes first. Evaluate your attaching points and evaluate our pictures. Don't be afraid to use a ruler or other measurement device. Finally, ask questions!!!! Send pictures of your watch!

You sound at times gruff and prickly. Are you easy to work with and approachable with questions and concerns?

No, I will poke fun at you if you make a mistake in ordering or forget to include information. But I stand by my product and take every order seriously. I only want satisfied customers making all of their friends jealous to the point of ordering one for themselves, thus driving more sales. With my Wife cracking the whip I get every order out as soon as possible and answer every question the same way.

I would like to place an order today. Can I have delivered by tomorrow?

No, each band is made custom every time, specifically, after an order is placed. I have a real job and family and each band takes time to make from scratch. I try to get orders completed and shipped in 2 to 3 weeks or sometimes less. Some times we have 20 pending orders sometimes we have 60. We have set shop work hours and work to complete as many as possible per day in that time. We complete them in the order they are received with complete info. It can take up to 6 weeks, though rare.

New priority shipping guarantees processing (time from order to shipped) time will be 7-10 or less. Chose it at checkout.

What does priority shipping get me?

If you have a circumstance where you need an order shipped in under 10 days or are impatient and have disposable income, select priority shipping and include your deadline in notes at checkout and we'll work 'overtime' to get you what you need within reason. Give a good sob story and I will put it in the priority que with a heart of ice, my wife may complete it by the next day with tears in her eyes, but it will be mailed in average 7-10 days.
