I really need to make one of these... yours looks great!

As for making it longer/adding more cord, what if you make it twice the size of your wrist so you're wrapping it twice instead of just once? Then you'd have twice as much cord.

Grand idea. I'd just be concerned about the over all size of it...as in, being sorta bulky.
I have one that I'm kinda sorta (not really) working on that has a large side release clip on it, not making it my wrist size, just making it a decent size and seeing if I can get 25 feet of cord in.

art should not exist for the sake of itself

If you use a small clip like a kitty clip it won't eat up so much space on your bracelet also Wink

Grats on making your own! My husband is an assistant scoutmaster, so we get the BSA catalogue flyer things all the time. They've got bracelets just like that for about $6 or so with a little clasp in them. My father-in-law, who has been a scoutmaster on and off for many many years, made actual whips out of plaited paracord (he did make some out of leather strips after a few paracord ones). It's really neat stuff!

I had a BLM ranger, retired Air Force I think, tow my golf cart at burning man with two strands of military grade paracord. The key to make sure it's military grade, it will have one strand of the white cords, inside the nylon casing, that has a single stripe.

One complete strand of military grade paracord has a breaking strength of 550lbs. So double the strand you get 1100lbs breaking strength and so on and so forth.

Great stuff. I need to get some for my car. Just in case.

I sure can.

and while mine does not have a side release buckle (can't seem to find any local) this one is set up super nice

I like it with the side buckle - for dog owners, make the dog carry the goods and make their collar with it Cheesy

you know what would make this super cool would be to put an army navy watch with a compass on it or just a compass.

a compass would for sure be a fantastic idea. I'll keep it in mind when scavenging material next time.
thanks
