Choose Paracord Over Standard Rope

What do the good guys in movies, firefighters, and cowboys all have in common? They carry a trusty piece of rope that always seems to come in handy at the right moment. While rope has long been the favored accessory, technology has developed far stronger material that may be the difference between saving the day and losing out on everything. If you are an avid hiker, working in an industry that requires an extra level of safety, or you simply want to be prepared, a Survival Strap is going to be there for you. Let’s take a look at why your next purchase should be a paracord survival bracelet rather than a standard piece of rope.


Have you ever had one of those old laundry lines made from traditional rope? While it looks great at first, eventually weather will ruin it. Traditional rope is susceptible to the elements where it will surely gather mold, become discolored, and weaken at the ends. Military grade paracord, on the other hand, is wrapped in a weather resistance material. This not only ensures the quality of the bracelet, but also the life of the product. No matter what environment you’re in, hot or cold, rain or snow, the Survival Strap is going to stay just as strong as the day you bought it.


This is really where it counts. In fact, it’s the primary reason you purchase a rope. Depending on your profession or latest project, is a piece of rope going to be able to be there when it counts? What’s more, think about the first point above. If you have left your rope to the elements, there’s a good chance that it’s far weaker than when you initially purchased it. Don’t take any chances. Choose a paracord rope. Military grade paracord rope comes with a standard rating of 550. What does this stand for? The number of pounds the bracelet can hold without worrying about it snapping. A paracord rope, like you’ll find with Survival Straps, can easily hold up to 550 pounds.


Has rope ever looked easy to carry? You either have to pack it inside of a bag or wrap it several times around your body. Neither option is convenient or comfortable. The beauty of a military grade paracord is its ability to be effective while being convenient. Survival Straps fit snuggly on your wrist with a sporty and fashionable design.

Maybe you need to haul timber, move boxes, or you simply want security when hiking. No matter your reason, when you need a rope that is reliable and dependable, look no further than Survival Straps. Offering plenty of options, you can customize your survival bracelet to match your style. Check out our entire Survival Straps collection.
