Prepping for the Great Outdoors with Paracord
You’ve probably seen dozens of paracord products on shelves, online, or on your friend’s wrist. A lot of people like the way paracord products look or the hold significance for them due to military service. Clearly many people love paracord [what’s not to love?!] and you can count me as one of their fans. You will be too once you reach about the pros of prepping for day to day life with paracord products.
First introduced by the Air Force during World War II as the suspension lines in parachutes, paracord was an essential material for military members, and then civilians. It quickly became a general-purpose utility cord used around the house and out in the wilderness. Paracord has even proven useful in space to help repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
Fast forward to today and you will find that paracord can be fashioned into many items, allowing the piece to be practical and ready to use should the need arise. Whether you must rig a piece of equipment back together, stop the blood flow on an injury, create yourself an extra shoelace or belt, or haul heavy items, parachute cord has performed countless tasks. All it takes is undoing a bracelet or lanyard, unraveling the paracord, and putting it to good use.
With loved ones as military veterans and first responders, paracord has been present in my life for several years now. It wasn’t until I discovered the different ways to fashion the paracord into everyday items that I realized the rope could be both fashionable and functional. Today, I offer dozens of items handmade from paracord. With a tensile strength of 550 pounds and a plethora of color options, there is a paracord product for everyone – including our favorite furry friends. One of my favorite paracord brands is Paracord Planet because it’s made in America and has a great quality; however I have used a few other brands when needed.
Southern Belle Products, my company, currently offers Dog Collars and Leashes handmade from paracord. The handcrafted Bracelets, Key Fobs, Lanyards, Rifle Slings and Watchbands will return soon! Reflective paracord options are great for nighttime excursions. For almost every inch of bracelet or collar, you get a full foot of paracord. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving when you need it most!
