Paracord almost used to be a military secret. Not many civilins knew about it or it's many uses. It has really become more widely known, especially as it exploded as a craft material.
I received a 100 foot bundle of Titan Genuine Military 550 Paracord to review and I was excited! I had wanted to learn to make bracelets and this allowed me the opportunity.
Paracord has so many uses. You can tie down things to the roof of your car, attaching a water bottle to your belt, string up sacks when camping to protect them from animals, stringing a quick line to dry clothes and so much more.
It is an awesome item to have in your emergency kit, disaster or survival kit and in your car. The bundle includes a great velcro strap to keep it contained and nice and neat.
I got this thinking my son knew how to make the bracelets that are so popular. He laughed at me when I asked him to show me how to do that! So I looked up some videos and learned how to make one with a fishtail design. I applaud all the kids that make these thing like it is nothing!!!
Paracord is stiff but super strong. and the cool thing about the bracelets is if you get into a situation where you need the paracord, you can undo them. Some of the design have as much as 25 feet of cord in them! The one I made has about 12 feet in it. I love all the vibrant colors it comes in. While wearing it, it's a stylish accessory with all the strength should you need it in an emergency.
So you might be asking what type of situations could someone get into where they might need to undo their bracelet. If you get lost while hiking or just exploring, the paracord can be used to estimate the distance covered by foot, you can lower your pack or other equipment down from a higher cliff or ledge, make a makeshift splint or sling if you are injured and you can even strip off the outer covering to reveal the individual threads that make up the core. These can be used for fishing or sewing gear.
Titan Paracord is is genuine military specs, 100% nylon. The company is a veteran-owned business and supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project. I love that! It is also made by a certified government contractor under tight specifications.
Now matter what you want to use it for, Titan Paracord comes in a 100 foot bundle for about $16 and is available in 9 vibrant colors. You can find this strong colorful paracord on Amazon.
