Survival straps

This is a local company that has some nifty products.

http://www.survivalstraps.com/men.html

It is a good way to carry cord on the bike with you for long country driving. The best part, if you use it in an emergency, they replace it free! I'm going to buy one for my bike key.

I have been using 550 paracord for years, but have never seen these bracelets before.
Neat Idea.

I've seen things like this on "u-tube". you can buy 550 cord off of ebay and watch a video or 2 on utube and make your own for way less!

but it's still a cool link. and a good idea.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

I too have been using 550 cord since I was in the Army. But I like the different designs and colors they have. And since they are a local company for me, I of course want to support them. There is no way I would buy it from Wally world though. lol

your right. 5-6' of 550 cord is not much. although, if you "know" how to "use" 550 cord, 5-6' can turn into much more than 5-6' of cord!

that is why I'd buy (or make my own) 550 cord belt! which would have anywhere from 80-100' of 550 cord!

but in any "survival" situation, anything is better than nothing.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

That's why I always carry a knife, a cell phone, credit cards, a leatherman tool, a cigar lighter, cigar, tiny LED flashlight, and on many occasions, my .45 with 2 extra clips.

If I can't "survive" with those a bit of cord won't help ...

But I guess I could always use it to take out that sentry .....silently....
