Survival Bracelets

Paracord survival bracelet | Zen Quest Adventures

If you found this page you are probably wondering how can this peace of woven parachute cord (paracord) help me survive in an emergency situation?

The reason is that with some string you can make many things and fix even more. Paracord is tested to hold a load of 249kg (550 lb.) This makes it strong enough for holding very heavy weights but at the same time is light and portable. The cord can be taken apart and the thin fibres inside used independently. Each Zen Quest survival bracelet contains at least 2.4m of full strength military grade paracord.
