Paracord bracelets are popular as they can be useful but some can be more useful than others that’s for sure. Today for review I’ve got a paracord bracelet that features a built-in magnesium bar, scraper/knife and even a whistle. Read on to learn more…
Product Name and Info:
Magnesia Rod helps you to be the real survival! Just rub the ROD to the scraper then you can get spark and fire, rubbing the wood to get fire now is a time-wasted job for the losers, not you the survival!
With the small scraper, you have no problems cutting the rattan, the meat, the rope and something you want to get help from. Do be careful to avoid injury.
A powerful whistle is really a must when in the wild, especially when you are weak and this whistle is good enough to raise the attention of your teammates a hundred miles away.
Make from 7-Strand Parachute Cord, this survival bracelet can be disassembled into a 137.8 inch rope which can stand up to 140 kg, about 308 lb.
This OmeGod Outdoor Survival Paracord Rope Bracelet is a great ideal accessory for camping, boating, hunting, hiking, and other sports activities, a great convenient for all the survivals.
Price: $6.99 (from Amazon at time of review)
The bracelet just ships in a plastic bag and that’s fine as it’s not exactly breakable, it’s just nylon essentially.
The bracelet is black in color and has plastic clasps or buckles on each end. One end has a magnesium bar and whistle in it and the other has a scraper/knife built-into it.
The magnesium bar does have black paint on it so you’ll need to scrape it off before trying to use it to expose the magnesium and it will produce sparks with the included scraper with a bit of work. The scraper is very small and it’s not sharp at all, I would sharpen it but being so small it can take a lot of work and patience.
As far as fit, for me it was a perfect fit, not too big and not too small. I’ve purchased inexpensive paracord bracelets before and they were too small for me, but this on is fine. The clasp locks well and holds firm.
So I have a lot of paracord floating around, expensive and inexpensive versions as I like to use it and make things from it. I had to cut this bracelet open to check the insides of it to make sure it was real and it is what it says it is, it isn’t. The listing says it’s 7 strand paracord but it’s not, it’s only 6 strand. Real 7 strand paracord should have 7 individual strands inside of the outer sheath but I only found six when I cut it open. They may consider the outer sheath as part of that number, but that’s not correct at all.
The cord seems decent overall though, it’s thick and slightly stiff like paracord should be. It’s real paracord, so that’s a plus there as some inexpensive bracelets like these aren’t.
I did fully unravel the bracelet and measure the cord length and it’s slightly over 120 inches or a bit more than 10 feet in length which can be useful for lots of things surely.
I have bought inexpensive paracord bracelets before and I can say this one is better quality overall than those are so for the price it’s worth it even though it’s not 7 strand paracord.
Yes it’s not 7 strand paracord, but it’s advertised as 7 strand so I’m not sure what to do with that little fact as it’s not a bad product in spite of being only 6 strand.
+Fits well, good size
