What is a Paracord Survival Bracelet?
Simply it's one length of a single piece of 550 Type III Paracord weaved into a bracelet and fashioned onto the wrist. The US reputation for manufacturing Paracord is mainly due to the fact that US manufacturers have defined standards outlined by the US Military (MIL-C-5040). It's easy to see that any situation that you find yourself in requiring Paracord only requires you to untie the bracelet and you have a very useful single piece of cord.
Uses of Paracord
Pretty much anything and everything mainly limited by a person's imagination to use the product. Broken shoe laces on a mountain hike? The outer sheath makes excellent boot laces and will most likely outlast the originals that came with the boots. Need some quick thread? The inner cores are great for impromptu fishing line or first aid. Need some lashing for a tarp shelter? Again take out the inner strands and you have all the cord that you need! .........a broken gear strap on your kayak/boat, making a field repair to your backpack or making an impromptu rope for a bear bag, etc.
Paracord is listed within nearly all survival kits today. Largely due to it being one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you can take to the field. It's light, super strong and super compact. The sheath is braided from 32 strands and the inner strands are made up of 7 two-ply yarns. Paracord survival bracelets are in use by both military / police units and civilians worldwide.
How to measure your wrist:
Using a flexible measuring tape measure just above (towards elbow) the wrist bone, then add 1/4" to 1 " (1/2" is average) depending on how tight you like your bracelets to fit. That is the size bracelet you would wear. The Paracord strap will shrink by 1/4 inch if and when it gets wet and dries out, so always add 1/4 inch to the measurement. You can then soak the strap in water and let it dry out for your true fit. If your wrist is in-between sizes, order the next larger.
