SpartaCord Fish & Fire Survival Kit Bracelet
‘Start a fire, catch a fish, live like a king or queen of the wild.’
If you’ve never seen a bracelet that doubles as both a fishing line and a firestarter, you’re not alone. We were bowled over when we discovered the SpartaCord Survival Kit Bracelet, and now we’re in love. This handy bracelet looks great on its own, but unravel it, and you’ll find a strong fishing line, and a strand of fire-starting jute.
Made from genuine military-grade paracord for added strength and durability.
Quality and materials
As mentioned, the SpartaCord Survival Kit Bracelet is made from military-grade paracord, so it’s incredibly tough and hard-wearing. The metal clasp that shuts the bracelet is strong and sturdy, so no need to worry about losing it on the trail. We were suitably impressed by how well the fishing line performed, too, and by how effective the jute fire cord is.
As well as being a fishing line and a fire-starting jute cord, the SpartaCord Survival Kit Bracelet is also suitable for tying up your shelter, or securing the splint around an injured limb (we didn’t try this, but it makes sense.)
The fishing line is a #8 variety, so it’s heavy and strong enough to handle most small fish, and the jute fire-starting cord is simple, yet effective.
