Recovery Straps are an essential piece of gear that all off-roaders should carry. They are used to safely recovery a stuck vehicle, using another vehicle. You first attach the recovery strap using d-ring shackels to a secure part of each vehicle. Then you slowly pull the stuck vehicle out with the other one, with enough force to use the elastic force of the strap and yank the vehicle out.
Even if you are a solo adventurer, you never know when you may run into someone else who needs help getting unstuck.
Check out this list of the best recovery straps to get you unstuck:
