I see them everywhere. What tactical advantage do you get from it?

    I know someone who does, I dare not question why. Elite forces from Zimbabwe/South Africa, head of private protection in the sandbox..

    I think it has to do with having a cord for SHTF, anytime you might need it. Would also make a quick garrote....

    No, there is not enough para-cord in one to do much good.

    I wear a belt that has 100' of cord in it. I had each boy in my scout troop make one at camp last summer. Now each boy has 100' of 600lb cord if they ever need it.

    I dont think 600 lbs is enough for some members around here

    No but I do wear tactical boxer shorts though. Hope this helps.

    As the forum libs suggest, I just stay away from situations where I might need para cord or where SHTF might occur. Hope this helps.

    Wear one quite often while in the woods, fishing and while at work. Mine has about 15 feet of three strand 600lb cord if I needed it it was be 45ft of @ 225lb cord. I don't wear it to be cool I wear it for function and am on my 3rd one as I used the other two. One for hanging a hog to clean it when I forgot my gimble and once to tie down my kayak after a jerk stole the straps outta the back of my truck. It's useful and there when needed. I don't wear it to be "tactical" because there is nothing tactical about it.

    Proly not, but if there are 3 scouts they can braid them together and have a pretty stout piece of line.

    Many of the bracelets are for looks, like wrapping a custom rod, different knot patterns using different colors of lines make some prety good looking bracelets.



    All of the scouts belts were OD green. We used what is called a "cobra" knot braid for the first and last 4" of belt with a crochet type of knot in the middle section so if needed it would not take a day to untie the thing. About 10 minutes for each end, the middle would just unravel if pulled.

    Yes I wear one. At 6' and 230 pounds I wouldn't exactly say I'm a ****. They have come in handy from time to time when i needed a piece of rope. I also have a small survival bag in my truck incase I get stranded some where or fishing and want to stay over night.

    All paracord bracelets are very useful. This one has over 16ft of paracord and hidden supplies woven inside the bracelet. These bracelets are a great thing to have while hiking, camping, fishing or just everyday carry.

    Actually, I'm not the original person to post this, Kodiazach was. I noticed I was getting views from Florida Sportsman and found this thread.

    Obviously, from reading this thread not everyone thinks that way. Just because you're not prepared doesn't mean others don't want to be.
