You might already have a bug-out bag or emergency kit, but those aren’t any good to you if you’re not carrying them when an emergency happens. This DIY bracelet packs heaps of survival tools on your wrist so you’re prepared for just about any adventure.
Instructables user wpage1 offers the detailed instructions for crafting your paracord bracelet and weaving the items into the center of it:
Craft your own all-purpose survival bracelet to better prepare you for any adventure or worst case scenario. It is an outfitted strap that comes equipped with a load out of gear allowing you to start a fire, repair your tent, purify water, signal for help, waterproof a poncho, replace a shoelace, fish, carve an arrow/fashions bow, set a snare trap, tighten a lose screw, or navigate to safety. It’s a lightweight Bug Out Bag for your wrist. All the items can be carefully placed into the center core under the weave pattern making it discreet and ready for the apocalypse.
Among the helpful instructions are examples and estimated prices for items you can include in your bracelet, sorted by categories such as survival, fire, aid and repair, and food and water.
Although you can buy pre-made bracelets like these, doing it yourself lets you customise the tools set and is also more gratifying.
