If you are going to try making your own paracord bracelets you need to try the proper stuff, or you’ll be disappointed and give up.

Our paracord is purchased directly from a US GSA approved contractor.  All our paracord is either military, or commercial quality.  We don’t use inferior cheap Chinese stuff.

When mixing colours in a braid the best way to join different colors is to melt them.  The cheap Chinese stuff doesn’t melt properly and you can tell by the smell it is cheap and very synthetic.  Once you have tried US paracord you won’t go back.

In our trials and from a safety aspect we found we got more burns with the cheap Chinese stuff.  It melts in such a way you cannot control it and you can get some nasty burns from it when trying to join colours.  The US stuff joins in a way that you have much more time and control over it.   Cheap paracord is lumpy and doesn’t make good bracelets.

To summarise, you can go for cheap paracord and it will make some paracord bracelets which may be ok.  Alternatively you can opt for the slightly higher priced kit from Survivalbands.co.uk which provides professional quality for a couple of pounds more.  We don’t go for the glossy packaging, we go for the quality product.  US paracord, kit and bracelets made in the UK.

Our kit isn’t a toy, our kit is the business.
