The paracord survival bracelet is a trend right now with men wearing bracelets made from parachute cord all over. While there’s no denying that a paracord bracelet is stylish, these bracelets were originally made for function, not just for fashion. There are a number of ways that you can use paracord bracelets when you’re in the wilderness.
Here are just a few:
- Animal Traps. If you were stranded in the wilderness and needed to find food, you could use a paracord bracelet to create a trap. All it takes is the ability to tie a snare noose, so make sure you practice those knots.
- Fire Starting. While it takes some practice and time, you can use friction from a length of paracord twisted and tied to a piece of wood rubbed against another piece of wood to start a fire.
- Stopping Bleeding. Following a severe injury to a limb, you can tie off the injured spot with unraveled paracord to attempt to slow or stop the bleeding until you get help.
- Emergency Shoe Laces. If you rip or break a shoelace, your paracord bracelet can be unraveled and threaded through your boots!
It’s not just a name! A paracord survival bracelet really could help you survive outdoors. Even if you’re not the rugged type, one of these bracelets could come in handy sometime when you’re wearing it as a fashion accessory.
