|Cobrabraid Paracord Bracelet|
When I received the bracelet in the mail I was surprised how stiff it was. I had never worn one before and when I put it on it was pretty stiff. Once I worked with it a little bit, it loosened up. When I had it on I noticed it was just a hair too big for my wrists. I never gave them a size so this should not be an issue if you order one from them and give them your size. The way that I fixed this was through a tip that someone had mentioned to me by soaking it in water and letting it dry. This did the trick and it sized it down just enough.
I began to wear the bracelet everywhere. I personally like the looks of the paracord bracelets. The Cobrabraid came equipped with an adjustable strap which was very convenient. It definitely made it easy to put the bracelet on and take it off without any worries of it falling off. It was very comfortable to wear as well. I thought that maybe with the adjustable strap with the plastic buckles that it would dig into my wrist or the Velcro would scratch me. It was never uncomfortable to wear.
The tough part of this review was when and how to use the bracelet. I was hoping that it was not a life or death situation and luckily it wasn't. This last weekend I had some free time so I quickly went out to try and catch some fish. I grabbed my pole and my tackle box and was fishing in no time. It turned out to be a great night for fishing and I hooked into a couple decent fish and man were they feisty.

So what does me fishing have to do with the Cobrabraid bracelet? Well I wanted to take home some fish to eat and reached into my tackle box for my stringer and there was no stringer. I decided that now was a better time than any to give the paracord a shot. So slowly I started to unravel the bracelet and it was very simple to unwind as you can see from the pictures below.

So once I unwound the cord it was very easy to use and I started attaching fish to my new stringer. This worked out really well.
