A Para-Cord Survival Bracelet is more than just cool looks. These bracelets are an easy way to carry extra parachute cord with you at all times. If a survival situation occurs, you can take the bracelet apart which will provide you emergency cordage! If you read Build the Perfect Survival Kit by John D. McCann, then you know how versatile seven strand parachute cord can be in a survival situation. If you didn't, then here you go; You can take parachute cord apart, using the seven inner strands for various functions such as shelter building, traps, net making, repairs, etc. The seven inner strands can be broken down further to make fishing line, etc. So if you have 10 feet of parachute cord, you actually have seventy feet of inner strands, and still have 10 feet of nylon shroud, which can also be used to tie things. All of our Para-Cord Survival Bracelets are made here in the USA by The Para-Cord Guy, and are constructed from Type-III Commercial, 7 inner strand, 550 lbs. test, Parachute Cord. They are made with a tight Cobra Weave with a 3/8" black side release buckle. The ends of the para-cord are securely seared off so they will not come loose during wear. However, they can be taken apart in an emergency so you can use the para-cord. The Small uses approx. 5-6 feet of para-cord, the Medium uses approx. 6-7 feet of para-cord, the Large uses approx. 7-8 feet of para-cord, and the Extra Large uses approx. 8-9 feet of para-cord. Product Made in America We offer our Survival Bracelets in four colors and four sizes. They measure as follows: - Small: 3/4" wide x 6.5" long. - Medium: 3/4" wide x 7.5" long. - Large: 3/4" wide x 8.25" long - X-Large: 3/4" wide x 9.25" long. GETTING THE RIGHT SIZE: Getting the right size is important (you don't want them too tight) and this can be done very easily. Simply take any string you have and wrap it around the wrist you plan on wearing your bracelet on, make sure there is a little slack in the string by putting your pinky finger between it and the wrist. Mark where the ends meet and measure this with a tape measure or ruler. Then, using the above measurements, use the size that will fit your wrist without being tight.
