The Well Dressed Survivalist - Part Two - The Paracord Bracelet

Two Color Paracord Bracelet

One of the items that a well-dressed survivalist will always have handy is paracord. The easiest way to do this is to wear a simple paracord bracelet. Unfortunately, not all paracord bracelets are created equal. One of the main things you should look for in a paracord bracelet is ease of deployment. The other main consideration is the type of paracord used to make your paracord bracelet.

Ease of Deployment Paracord Wrap

Many times paracord bracelets will have their loose cords tucked under the braids. This makes it quite difficult to quickly deploy the paracord in your bracelet when you need to use it. When your bracelet is properly tied, your paracord will be readily accessible and it will be easier for you to deploy your paracord bracelet

Fishtail Paracord Wrap

The most common braid used on paracord bracelets is the cobra style of braid. They can also be found in fishtail and gator versions if you want a slightly different look. The gator version will also allow you to carry a greater amount of cordage. Both versions can offer you ease of deployment for your paracord.

Gator Paracord Wrap

There is an excellent tutorial on how to tie a gator here:

Paracord also comes in two basic types. There is the regular commercial type of paracord and the mil-spec paracord. The mil-spec paracord is a little higher in cost but offers you the opportunity to deploy significantly more cordage when needed. You can always opt for the kits that are available to save some money by making your own paracord bracelet.
