How a Paracord Bracelet Could Save Your Life

Posted by Self Reliance Outfitters on June 10, 2013  

Wearing a paracord bracelet and being prepared isn’t being paranoid; it’s just common sense. You never know when you’re going to run into an emergency situation. Even such things as a drive in the country, a hunting expedition or a fishing trip can turn into a life-or-death event due to an accident or unexpected weather. Having a paracord bracelet with you at all times is just being smart.


paracord bracelet (also known as a survival bracelet) is made of 550-nylon parachute cord that is woven into a tight, unobtrusive (and even stylish) bracelet with a clasp. A paracord bracelet can be worn around your wrist or your ankle. The cord unwinds instantly in an emergency and can be used for a myriad of things, such as throwing a life line to someone struggling in the water, lashing branches together to make a shelter, trapping animals for food or even as a tourniquet in case of an acute injury.

A rope of any kind is a necessary part of bushcraft and survival technique. A paracord bracelet made from 550-cord lets you be prepared without being weighed down. The best paracord bracelet is the one that’s on your wrist (or around your ankle) when you need it. Paracord bracelets have been used by soldiers in Iraq, by divers, by hunters and fisherman and by every outdoorsman or woman for whom safety is a priority.
