Going on a hunting trip, camping, or just an adventure? There's a multitude of things you'll need - tent, hunting gear, food, water. But what about your paracord bracelet? It's probably the smallest and easiest to carry item that you should always have on you.
A paracord bracelet is not only unique and stylish. It can also save your life. They can be used to secure a splint, as a sling, trap food, tie down gear, secure a tent, and more. But what about the paracord accessories that can help you out in a bind? And what bracelets give you the most amount of the awesomeness that is paracord? Here, I will tell you about a couple different weaves and bracelets, and show a handful of great buckles to have when you're out in the wilderness.
The most common is the Cobra weave. This will give you approximately 7-9 feet of usable paracord. A "King Cobra" will give you over 12 feet of usable paracord!
Another great bracelet to have when you're out in the wild is one with a survival buckle (pictured below). With this bracelet you can of course quickly and easily start a fire as well as use the whistle to alert people of your position or scare off an unexpected visitor.
You can find the Emergency Buckle here.
