Paracord bands have been around for years they look good and it is always smart to have some cordage on you if you ever need it.

If you need it you have it and we want you to us it. Para cord is made up of a strong 550 cord. Each inch in your HIP BAND is equivalent to 11 inches of 550 pound strength cord. Each cord has 7 inner yams (strands) of string that are 35 pound test each plus the sheath, and each inner yam (string) had three strand at 10 pounds of tinsel strength.
EXAMPLE: The average male wrist has 8 inches of woven paracord in a HIP BAND:
8” x 11” = 88 total inches of cord. 7.33 feet
