Last time we went hiking with our kids, my husband had some rescue rope he was throwing in the back of the van. I’m thinking, we’re in O-H-I-O! What the…? His answer…you never know. Yes, it is confirmed. Sometimes these firefighters just can’t get their jobs out of their brains!
So he was pretty giddy last week when these bracelets showed up from Cobrabraid that are made of paracord. (This means the ropes that are used to hold parachutes – mega strong. I’ll save you the 10 minute technical talk I politely listened to.)
My husband and I both wore these bracelets around for a couple days to try them out. Not bad. The small sized one fit my small wrist pretty well. My husband was ‘not annoyed’ wearing a bracelet which is not normal for him. It also held up well to his rough-housing (no surprise).
The clasps are sturdy and easy to hook with one hand. And can you believe there is around 15 feet of paracord wrapped in this convenient bracelet package?
I did not ask this question but I’m assuming if you have to unravel it to use it, there’s no way to turn it back into a bracelet.
If you’re not into the bracelet thing, this carabiner keychain is pretty handy too. I have been using a carabiner to clip my keys to the handles on my purse. It helps to find them more quickly instead of digging around.

How can I get one for free?
I have one large size Cobrabraid bracelet to give away. Here’s the deal.
In the comments below, share the best idea of how you can imagine you or your firefighter needing to unravel this bracelet and use it for rescue purposes. The person with the best idea will win the bracelet. We need at least TEN ENTRIES to pick a winner so everyone get creative!
I’ll get you started with one idea: We were traveling on the interstate with a fourwheeler, bicycle and Power Wheels ride on toy all piled into a trailer being pulled by our mini-van (uh-huh – Beverly Hillbillies!) Things were bouncing all over the place and needed some extra securing. Paracord to the rescue!
Ok. So that’s pretty lame. I KNOW you all can top that idea. Ready. Go!
