These speed strips are much like anything else, they have a definite lifespan. Just like tires, they recommend them to be stored out of direct sunlight, in a cool environment. Exposure to solvents and chemicals will degrade them faster. Just like magazine springs when they are left loaded for long periods of time, they have a service life.

Consider them a consumable and plan to replace them all every few years. Which is exactly what I do. I carry two speed strips and a speed loader. The speed loader gets used first.

Dude it is rubber, silicone spray now and then would probably do wonders to extend the life of the speed strips. I bet you pay a lot more for windshield wipers but don’t complain when you have to replace them every two or so years. Just sayin

I use those as well, mine recently fell apart and I’ve been looking for a replacement. I like having the 8 rounds, and at $9/2 and it lasting the 6 years I’ve had them I don’t think it was a bad investment. Since mine and yours gave up around the same time, I wonder if they were made around the same time. Trying to figure out a better way to carry my Safariland Speedloaders now.

I have a speed strip pouch by that brand and it has held up just fine. The speed strips that I use are made by Bianchi, and they’ve held up several years without any signs of wear.
The point you make is absolutely valid – the gear we may have to suddenly rely upon to save our life our or family has to function 100%. Anything less isn’t just bad, it’s dangerous.
