Paravival Bracelet

Paracord Bracelet From www.ParaVival.com

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the guys that run ParaVival and asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their bracelets. I love reviewing things and badly needed a new paracord bracelet. My old one was a crappy one from REI and was too thin. Also this gave me an opportunity to get one in the Survivalpunk colors of black and red.  Basically wins all around.

Para Cord Sandal

So I had been thinking about alternatives to commercially manufactured foot ware for a while. Something easy and made from either stuff lying around or an abundant resource. I’m still kicking around the idea of a tire shoe/ sandal. Inspiration struck when I was watching a Japanese show (anime) called Bleach. The main character wore a pair or sandals that looked like they were made from woven rope. I researched it and indeed they are real. They are known as Waraji 草鞋 and are made from straw rope and were the traditional footwear for the common people of Japan as well as the samurai and foot soldiers. So I was thinking if it’s woven rope I’ll try to make a waraji from paracord. Let me show you how.
