Paracord – Paracord is one of the key features of any survival bracelet. Choose a model with 330lb to 550lb paracord for high tensile strength. We love the 60-feet paracord of the Gecko Equipment Paracord Bracelet. The Gecko bracelet debunks the notion that paracords can only handle short lengths of rope. The bracelet’s metal shackle closure ensures durability enough to handle outdoor needs.
Compass – the compass will help you when you unfortunately get lost while hiking. Just make sure that you know the location of your camp before you set foot.
Knife blade – this feature is loved both by EDS enthusiasts and survival coaches. You get the knife for self-defense situations and the paracord for first aid situations. It is recommended to have a bracelet with different knife blades to suit your outdoor needs. Double-edge straight blades are a good cross-utility tool. The Tactic Ops Paracord Knife Bracelet has a clasps that doubles as a stainless steel knife that is a straight edge.
LED Light – a LED light in your paracord bracelet may be your back-up light after your camping headlight or flashlight.
Emergency Whistle – is one of the basic survival gear; you can use this to attract attention during search and rescue operations
Fire-steel and striking blade – life-threatening situations may call for you to spend time in the wild. A fire starting blade would be your life-saver to cook food or keep you warm. The X-Plore Gear Emergency Paracord Bracelets is 5-piece gear that includes a flint fire starter that can be used to start fire in an emergency situation or for normal camping use in reheating food.
Some paracord bracelets offer one from the list while there are some that come with multiple gears with the bracelet. We have three multi-purpose paracord bracelets in our list that contain more than one gear listed above. We particularly like the simple buckle closure that allows adjustable length of the Atomic Bear Paracord Bracelet.
