Survival kit/Paracord bracelet

A Paracord bracelet is a bracelet woven out of paracord. Paracord bracelets are also known as survival bracelets, 550 cord bracelets, or parachute cord bracelets and are considered a survival tool. The bracelets are worn by survivalists, hikers, climbers, campers, or anyone who enjoys the outdoors. These bracelets become extremely handy in survival or emergency situations. The cord itself is made up of 7 inner strands which each contain three inner strands of their own, which gives you a fair amount of cord to work with.

Cutting out the inside cord and attaching it to the outer cord using a square knot will often yield hundreds of feet worth of cord, which can be used for fishing, sewing, building shelters, among other things. Paracord bracelets are good insurance for anyone who might find themselves in a survival situation unexpectedly. Usually made with a side release buckle, they can also be made with shackles, a simple knot and loop, or even a whistle buckle. Using a whistle buckle as your connection piece for your paracord bracelet can be a plus, since creating noise is often useful when attempting to find help.
