Paracord, in case you’re not aware, is an extremely strong form of nylon rope designed for parachutes — hence the name.
These bracelets are actually more than just a fashion statement. When unwound, these bracelets are a powerful survival resource.
Because they were designed to be used in life-or-death situations (parachutes) you can count on these cords being super strong.
To illustrate just how versatile this small rope is, I decided to come up with a quick list of 25 uses. Here’s what I came up with:
- Makeshift belt
- Tie-downs for tents, tarps, cargo
- Hang food in trees away from wildlife
- To tie a holster/sheath to your leg
- Replacement boot laces
- Tie bundles of kindling
- Carry strap for your compass
- Hang a lantern
- Makeshift net
- Makeshift hammock
- Splint broken fingers
- Wrap around your hands for emergency gloves
- Rifle sling
- Stringer (for fish)
- Hang deer and game for dressing
- Tow rope (braid several strands together)
- Pull cord for small engine (lawnmower, chainsaw, etc.)
- Replacement grip for hand tools
- Emergency tourniquet
- Trip wire
- Dog/pet leash
- Makeshift handcuffs
- Trotline or jug line
- Repair broken straps
