Naturally, your first question will probably be, "What is a paracord bracelet?"
A paracord bracelet, also known as a survival bracelet, is a woven bracelet that is generally made using 550 paracord. Woven into one of a number of different patterns, paracord bracelets are worn for both fashion and function.
What function can a paracord bracelet serve? Paracord bracelets can be quickly unwoven to provide the wearer a length of strong paracord that can be used for any number of survival-related activities. None of that matters, however, if you do not know what paracord is or why you should keep it handy.
Parachute cord, more commonly known as paracord and sometimes 550 cord, is a type of nylon kermantle rope that was originally designed for and used in suspension lines found in United States parachutes during World War II. Its versatility was quickly realized by paratroopers that discovered their suspension lines served a number of secondary applications.
Kermantle rope is a type of rope characterized by an interior core, known as the kern and an exterior sheath, which is designed to provide an added degree of strength, durability and flexibility. As one would expect, the tensile strength of kermantle rope is derived from the kern whereas the exterior sheath exists primarily to protect the kern from abrasions.
Since its introduction by the military decades ago, paracord has gone on to enjoy wild success on the civilian market, as evidenced by the paracord bracelet kit. With virtually limitless applications, paracord is becoming more and more popular with time.
As noted, the paracord bracelet buckle pack contains six side-release buckles for weaving a paracord bracelet. Buckles are available in the following sizes:
- 3/8 inch
- 1/2 inch
- 5/8 inch
The paracord bracelet buckle pack is now available for just $2.49.
