You see them every now, in all the sporting goods stores and even if Walmart. They come in a variety of colors and even with watches or some sort of dog tag engraved. And it seems everyone is wearing them, but ask the average person why they are wearing a paracord survival bracelet and you might get this answer; “I think they look cool.” (As a former youth pastor I’ve heard that line from students) It’s become a fashion trend, but ask the average person it’s purpose and other then as a watch they don’t know.
I have one that I wear, but you won’t always find me wearing it while sitting in a Starbuck’s or as a fashion statement. However, I will wear it while out hiking, backpacking or camping.
Paracord can withstand 550 pounds of pressure but is a lightweight cord. It is considered a useful survival tool that can be helpful when you need it. A paracord survival bracelet enables you to carry several feet of parachute cord easily, which can be used in an emergency. It is ideal for camping, boating, hunting, hiking, and much more. The cord can be used for anything requiring great strength & durability.
If you find yourself in a situation that you need to use it, you can unravel your paracord bracelet and use it. It’s that easy.
