I much rather keep big bundle of paracord in the manpurse. Much more convenient.
you are allowed to wash them, you know Mine gets clicked to a belt loop and goes in the washing machine with regular intervals. If not, the bracelets become bacteria eldorado.Mines so caked with sweat and dust and dirt it would fall apart if I tried to unravel it.
Mine is a reminder of being in the sand box + plus I make them myself. You have to make them yourself or its sort of an oxymoron - wearing a symbol of being self sufficient on your wrist and not being able to make it yourself Further more, paracord bracelets are easy to knot/learn how to make. Stormdrane rocks!
I dont find the bracelets bulky, but I cannibalize them and use a very small buckle. Im surprised how durable the bracelets are - Ive worn the same bracelet for years. you are allowed to wash them, you know Mine gets clicked to a belt loop and goes in the washing machine with regular intervals.

Soak it in a cup filled with Oxyclean. Fill the cup, twist/connect the bracelet "inside out" and leave it in for a couple of days. Then run it through the washing machine.I wash mine every now and then, but as tight as it is and as fine as the dust is/was it'll never come out.
Not really. I have two. Both given me at different times by different Lebanese Arabic linguists. They were gifts. I wear them ONLY because of that.Mine is a reminder of being in the sand box + plus I make them myself. You have to make them yourself or its sort of an oxymoron
For those of us in a non-REMF capacity, it started out as a reminder of service and friends alive and fallen. Some were made when on tour.
