    Paracord Watch Straps

    Stumbled on these today and thought someone around here might get some use out of them:

    http://www.survivalstraps.com/paracordwatchstraps.html

    "Survival Watch Straps are Tough. They are hand made from military issue 550 lb. test paracord. Instead of a traditional buckle, they utilize a 316 marine grade stainless steel shackle for attachment purposes. They are not adjustable like a traditional buckle. However, you will be able to expand the size of the strap by approximately 1" to adjust for your comfort. Our Watch Straps use a pull through design so you will not lose your watch due to a pin failure. Each Strap contains several feet of paracord. In an emergency situation, you could deploy this cord, and the stainless shackle, for use. If you do use your Watch Strap, simply send it back to us, along with your story, and we will remanufacture it, free of charge. Put on a Warrior Watch Strap today to give your watch a completely new personality that matches your personal style."

    Not cool. looks like that stuff they made in the 1970ies, macrame or whatever it was called. The "bucle" looks really, really comfortable.
    Not!
    No, if you really want to be cool, just make a strap out of 3M Duct tape.

    I don't remember which forum it was in, but this came up a while back. I was bored one day and made my own out of some spare cord I had lying around for my Alpha PO. It actually looked pretty good, but the cord was uncomfortable because of its quality. Thanks for bringing this up again, I think I'll buy some para cord and make a few more.
    Regards,
