Imagine finding yourself stranded in the forest, with no food or water. Or caught in an avalanche, freezing to death beneath a mountain of snow.
Sounds scary, doesn’t it? But you’d have absolutely nothing to worry about if you were wearing your Paracord Survival Bracelet. (Also required: a cellphone, your GPS, warm blankets, a week’s supply of food and a Coleman stove.)
Yes, this is the hottest thing in survival gear since the lit match. Technically, it’s called a 550 Cord, which confused me because that’s also the name of the Levi’s I wear. The bracelet is made of 90 feet of intricately woven thread crafted into a nifty piece of rope jewelry. The material was first used in World War II by paratroopers.
