Side Release Buckle
The value of a paracord bracelet cannot be overstated. When looking through your options, you face the choice of a side release buckle versus a shackle closure. Making the right choice is a matter of anticipating your needs. The shackle closure, made of stainless steel, is bulkier, harder to remove and stronger than the buckle. This makes it ideal for situations likely to abuse the bracelet harder, such as moving through very thick brush. The side release buckle paracord bracelets are easier to put on and take off, and they are less bulky.
The buckle itself is made from military grade plastic fabrication. It is extremely tough, allowing it to withstand the punishment that often comes with outdoor work. It is impervious to corrosion and very resistant to heat, ensuring you that melting is not likely to be an issue. When the bracelet is unraveled, the buckle can still be used as a simple fastener that is easy to snap open and shut. This makes it a superior option for building fasteners or retainers that will require fast access.
Optimizing your gear is the best way to stay safe in a dangerous situation. No matter the reason for your expedition, make sure you are prepared for anything. Look through our bracelet options and find your perfect match.
