550 Paracord Survival – Utility Bracelets

These bracelets allow you to fashionably carry up to 10 feet of high tensile strength, mil-spec , 550 paracord on your person at all times for utility and survival use.  Just unbraid the bracelet and guy-out a tent/tarp or simply secure a load in the bed of your truck or on top of your mini-van.  You could also fix a broken purse strap, replace a shoelace, or string up a piñata at a birthday party.  Remove the “guts” of the cord for an improvised fishing line or sew up some broken gear.  There are literally thousands of uses for this cord – perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and MacGyver types anywhere.

We only use true USA made, Mil-Spec (MIL-C-5040H TYPE III) 550 cord to construct these bracelets.  550 paracord is a versatile kernmantle type cord that is made up of 7 inner strands of twisted nylon with a braided outer sheath (kernmantle).  It is rot and mildew resistant and has a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds (hence the name 550 cord).  

These bracelets have four major parts to them which are pointed out in the picture below.
