Paracord Bracelets

The only thing that I enjoy seeing more than a young entrepreneur is one that makes a useful and quality product. Enter 15 year old Hans Tuanquin…

Hans makes and sells bracelets out of 550 Paracord.  For those of you who don’t know,  Paracord is a nylon rope whose inner core is protected by an outter woven sheath. It’s small 4mm Diameter is able to hold a tremendous amount of weight… up to 550 pounds. Paracord is quick drying, resistant to rotting, and is extremely durable. One of the things anyone going into a wilderness environment should carry with them is cording of some sort. I know it doesn’t seem like something you will use often, but when you need some, you quickly realize how important it is. Cording can be used for very simple things like repairing broken shoe laces to possibly life saving uses such as making a first aid tourniquet. Those are a few great reasons to carry any sort of cording with you when your going into the outdoors and the extremely high strength to weight ratio of Paracord makes it an excellent choice. One issue becomes how to easily carry some with you. Well, one way would be if a stylish bracelet was made from it and it, and if needed, could be taken apart, and provide you with roughly 9 feet of cording.


Hans has a website where he sells the paracord bracelets he makes himself… and if you want you can get one customized in 3 different colors. I’m thinking sports team here.  Head on over to his site, check it out and leave him a comment or two of encouraging words letting him know what a great job he’s doing and praising him for taking the initiative to make the bracelets,  put together his own site, and marketing them. That’s the entrepreneurial spirit… especially from a 15 year old young man. Way to go Hans!
