On the surface, Life Support’s survival bracelet looks like any old piece of paracord kit, but it’s what’s wrapped inside that counts! Tightly woven beneath the survival bracelet’s 14-15 feet of 550 paracord is Life Support’s Survival POD which contains the following items: 6-by-6-inch piece of multi-purpose foil, 8 feet of snare wire, 20 feet of 6-10-pound-test fishing line, two fishhooks, two split shots, a plastic fishing lure, 10 feet of sewing thread with needle, three weatherproof matches with striker and two pieces of char cord/cloth. All of the products found in the POD were selected and tested to improve the wearer’s odds of survival in any emergency situation, whether it be in the wilderness, at sea, or even in an urban emergency situation. Several models of bracelets and keychain-type (with carabiner) models are available that also include a small compass or a whistle built into the bracelet’s closure system.
