The best durable masculine looking rosary ever!

I have many rosaries. They look great but Rugged Rosaries is on a different level. It’s durable and tough. I like the weight of this rosary. It’s heavier than other rosaries and it exactly what I want.
The crucifix is big and yet fits perfectly in my hands.
The best thing about this is that it just fits over my head so I wear it all the time!
No regrets about this purchase.
When I asked my priest to bless it, he was amazed at how good it looks.
I think I’ll have to buy one for each of my priests soon!

Feels comfortable in my hands

I enjoy the weight of this rosary. I have already used and will continue to use this rosary. I plan on carrying it in my pocket, but I may have to order another from RR and use this one next to my chair at home. One suggestion may be to put a little extra room on the cord for the Our Father beads. Much appreciated.

I was in awe!

At 38 I have seen a lot of rosaries in my life. Mostly the standard plastic ones. I bought a beautiful wooden one for my car from Knights of Columbus museum. I also purchased one from Amazon, that is nice. This one however, has weight, the beads are movable with each Hail Mary. I have two miraculous medals on it, one is standard, but when I found out I could add St. Dymphna (the patron Saint of mental health) I knew this rosary would be special. I had it blessed by my priest and he did a special blessing as required for the St Benedict imsignia on the crucifix. The quality is outstanding and well worth the price, but the peace I find holding it and praying, the love I have to share it and how personal it is. Well, that can’t be bought!!

What I was looking for.

These are high quality and as the name implies, rugged expressions of faith. I bought two. I couldn’t be happier. I opted for an additional St. Jude and St. Michael medal. I kept one for myself and gifted the other to a Brother I found in service I have ordered more from this company since this purchase and if I believe I need to gift someone with a physical expression of faith they may not know exists. This will be my only place to go.

Great variety!

Love the variety of products. The quality and craftsmanship are second to none.

I bought the the ashes to ashes rosery for my nephew as a gift for his first holy communion. It's one of the most beautiful and unique rosery I've seen. Only issue I have is it's too small to get over his or my head even. Other than that it is very well made and all around great products. I will definitely be ordering more for my son and I both. Keep up the great work over there!!

Totally awesome rosaries

I can’t say enough good things about Rugged Rosaries. I highly recommend Rugged Rosaries to anyone looking for high end rosaries and excellent customer service.

The heavy duty paracord rosaries were totally awesome and the quality exceeded my expectations.

The customer service was top-notch. From the moment I contacted Rugged Rosaries, they were both responsive and accommodating. I had a question about swapping out the crucifix and the response time was extremely speedy and they were eager to do it as well.

I will be a repeat customer Rugged Rosaries for sure. Keep up the great work and God bless.
