Paracord Survival Bracelet
My first one
One of Mine
I have begun wearing a paracord (550lbs minimum breaking strength) survival bracelet on my right wrist whenever I am on duty. If you are not familiar with it, it is a bracelet woven and tied into a knot from one or more pieces of cord that when unraveled can provide, depending on wrist size, 14' to 24' of cord. The bracelet is basically like carrying a loop of rope that you forget that you even have it with you until the need arrives. It is also cheep, easy to get and all over the internet. I only purchase mine (I have several in a bunch of different colors) that are either made by our military or organizations selling them as fund raisers for worthy charities. Bear Grylls from Man Vs. Wild, wears one made by survival straps (Link: Survival Bracelet Purchase) and more importantly a lot of our troops overseas. I would strongly recommend wearing one regardless of your mission, profession or duties it will come in handy for anyone.
