Product Reviews

  1. Very cool look! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Nov 2014

    I've used these in zipper pulls, lanyards, and bracelets. They help the zipper pulls stand out on my 5.11 range bag and give a sharp contrast on bracelets. I'd like to see these in anodized black and brass as well. Thanks for another great product!

  2. Excellent Quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2014

    Outstanding quality and they are perfect for all my EDC and bushcraft tools/knife lanyard.I bought style number 2 and 7. Internal diameter hole allows a double length of 550 paracord to pass through with little force and you will get just the right amount of friction.

  3. Great quality! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2014

    Great design and build quality. Great to see.

  4. The quality I expected from Exotac... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2014

    These beads met the expectations I had based upon the quality I've seen in the various other products I've purchased from Exotac.
    I bought all three styles, and generally like large beads. However, my favorites in order were styles 2, 7, and 8, which is oddly smallest to largest. I liked their overall design and feel in the hand, in that same order.
    The packaging was top notch and customer service extremely good, as you would expect from a small American company that cares about quality. Well done, Exotac!

  5. True masculine baubles 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2014

    These are truely cool items. Will add some useable bling to a knife or flashlight. A little on the spendy side but worth it.

  6. Audacious beads. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2014

    These are some seriously manly beads here, I just tossed a few on a length of paracord and tied it around my neck. Dang, if I didn't already have a beard I'd have to grow one!
