    Does anyone else wear a survival bracelet? If you've never heard of them, they're a bracelet made from braided paracord and some have tools attached to them. I wear two, one has a handcuff key and whistle, while the other has a firestarter, fishing line and a small blade. You pull to unravel the paracord to get to the tools inside.

    My husband has one with a wire saw inside of it.

    Anyone else wear these?

    Curious item and pretty convenient for the size of a wrist. A survival bracelet comes in quite handy when trying to put together a simple shed. Unweave the paracord and use the inner strands to lash branches together, also you can also Unweave it to attach a hook and bait for fishing. That paracord really has tons of uses.

    I wear one but only because I like them, in an emergency situation they'd be too cumbersome to unravel much better to carry a length of paracord, or any cord, for that purpose.

    My husband actually handcuffed me to make me practice unraveling it while cuffed. The first time it took me almost an hour, probably didn't help that he was laughing at my struggles.

    I have never heard of that before. That sounds really cool and it sounds like it would come in handy a lot. I kind of want one now.

    You can get them really cheap online or even make them yourself, if you know how to braid paracord. They range from $10 to $100 and are sold at all major internet retailers like Amazon, eBay, esty, etc...

    There's also lots of video reviews on YouTube. They're pretty neat.

    I haven't heard about it, but it seems very interesting! Can you obtain it in any convenience store? I've wanted one of those for a long time, but I wasn't too sure on where to purchase it or not, but now that I see it, it can be very useful!

    Thanks for adding to my Amazon list Destiny. Ha, I already have a lock pick set on there after some perusing on these forums.
    In all these sound a pretty fantastic idea. Easy to keep on your person, hard to lose while you're hauling arse.

    I like it.

    I never knew that something like that exists but after reading about it in here I would definitely like to get myself one because you never know what could happen....

    if you wear it long time it gets manky and isn't really useable in an emergency, your best bet is to carry a length of paracord ready to use, in an emergency you don't want to waste time unbraiding something.
    I wear it more as a recognition symbol, and because I like bracelets, not as a replacement for cord.

    I have one, but I don't wear it now. I don't think mine has anything inside, though. I've never unbraided it to see, scared I won't be able to braid it again. Maybe I should look up some videos on YouTube to learn how. I've seen a lot of these bracelets with a watch, compass etc. on it. I'm definitely going to look up some more of them. Would like to have a couple of them with different tools. And practicing to unbraid them and braid them with hubby sounds like fun. Think I'm trying this soon! Thanks for this post @Destiny

    I would use this , it looks pretty cool. I saw one with a compass whistle and a fire starter from Sahara Sailor. This looks like a convenient way to have certain tools with you that you would need for survival. If someone was on naked and afraid and had there pick of one item they should pick
    this.

    This is the first i have heard of these. They sound handy and allow your hands to be free to carry other supplies if needed.

    I have seen them before but i don't own one. It might come in hand in a emergency situation but it's better to try it out before that so you know what to expect. The last thing you want is to put all your hope in a object just to find out in a emergency situation it doesn't work.

    they get pretty "manky" if you wear them for a long time and aren't practical in an emergency, better to carry a length of cord instead.
