Paracord Watchband

Paracord or 550 cord was originally used as a suspension cord in WWII for parachutes. Once in the field, paratroopers found it useful for many other tasks.
Now many soldiers have a braided bracelet made from paracord as well watchbands that they can unravel if needed in certain circumstances. There are many tutorials on how to make one yourself, or you can always buy one from these guys where they claim to give you back a free bracelet when you used it in an emergency situation!
I only like accessories if there is a certain functionality to it, more than just fashion. Not that I am the kind of guy getting into these sort of situations, but you never know! MacGyver eat your heart out...
