Type III Paracord bracelets are made with cord that can hold 550lbs test weight and last forever. These particular bracelets have an extra survival addition you may find both convenient and smart. The synthetic clip houses a high-pitched whistle that is most commonly used for locating parties under extreme conditions where line of sight is not clear. During a survival emergency, having a whistle could save your life, as in some cases, vocal cords may not produce the desired effect. The whistle red and white bracelet has also been popular for outdoor enthusiasts that go camping and hiking in the wilderness. If ever you cross the path of a wild animal, loud, synthetic noises can quickly scatter them. Proactively blowing the whistle usually keeps them away. This particular style large paracord bracelet comes with a signature Skull within the braiding. MIL-SPEC Type III Paracord is woven together using the Cobra weave, totaling approximately 17+ feet of 550lbs test rope into a 10 inch bracelet. ABS clips strap together with a hard click, securing the Paracord to your wrist because you know your survival resources are needed most when you have nothing else. Unravel the bracelet and use the paracord in a million ways. Have your Paracord bracelet on so even if you lose your bag you will still be wearing the Paracord bracelet. These are very popular with outdoors enthusiast, survivalists, emergency personnel, the military, and cover many other interests.
