|This is what I think a Paracord Survival Bracelet should look like.|
I would like to show you guys what I think a real paracord survival bracelet should be. The purpose of such a bracelet would be to pack in the most amount of functionality into a bracelet, while still keeping the costs reasonable and the bracelet functional.
Starting with the cord. I was recently introduced to a new product called Fish & Fire Paracord. This cord combines all of the strengths of 550 Paracord (7 white internal strands & strong outer sheath), with an added 8 lb test monofilament fishing line and a strand of jute twine.

makes this bracelet excellent.
The next thing that makes this bracelet so useful is the buckle. The Firestarting Whistle Buckle combines a buckle, a ferrocerium (fire steel) rod and a functional whistle. This buckle, along with the Fish & Fire Paracord, would allow you to start a fire almost anywhere, as long as you have adequate fuel after you ignite the jute.
To me, a bracelet made with these two items makes a lot of sense. The added functionality of the whistle, fishing line, ferro rod and jute, make this bracelet a great addition to your EDC gear.
