Whatever your need, it adds piece of mind to know what you are wearing on your wrist is functional and adds to your capabilities.
Paracord, or 550 cord, is a specific type of type III parachute cord. It is made of nylon, which gives the cord a smooth exterior thanks to the webbing. Inside, the cord is made of 7-9 strands of woven nylon. It is most commonly used to lash items onto backpacks and other bags, but can be used for virtually anything.

The CRKT Paracord bracelet is perfect for those that want a blend of practicality and style. The quick release feature makes getting the bracelet off easy and, once off, the paracord unravels for use very quickly by pulling on the two tabs available.The paracord bracelet can be unwrapped in record time, and can easily be reconstructed and rebuilt. There is even a video of how to reweave it on Columbia River’s website. We couldn’t get it quite as tight as it comes from the factory, but as far as rewraps go, it was painless compared to other options.
The quick release aspect of this bracelet isn’t proprietary. You can find this design elsewhere, but CRKT does it really well. It is constructed of 550 paracord. This bracelet was designed by Jason Scarvalas. It comes in two sizes, large and small, in three different colors; black, tan and fuchsia.
The small has about 6.25 feet or paracord and the large size has about 7 feet. While this doesn’t have as much cord as some other bracelets here, the value is in how quickly it can be deployed. The notion is that many paracord objects don’t have the ability unwrap the paracord quickly, which may be a crucial feature in an emergency situation.
