You get the idea — the only limitation is your imagination! Regardless how cool or “in” these bracelets are, just think how handy a bracelet made from 550 cord would be if you are in any of the situations above?
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 3 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.
