    It looks good. I might order one, since I kinda wanted one so my wrists don't feel as bare, but I don't need more paracord and can only really get buckles in bulk. The prices seem fair. I'll think about it, possibly place my order later this afternoon.

    I'd suggest adding a coding for the colors to make it easier on placing/receiving orders, though. Like, in a sample of each "style" designate A, B, C colors. For example, in the single weave, left side of the photo, take the top one. Black/blue. Say Black is the "A" color and Blue is the "B" color, which would be reversed for the picture on the right. Or some other method.

    I've done coding work on interfaces for custom work before (pipe fittings and diameter changers, but still...), and that makes a drastic improvement on sales.

    Also, the colors are hard to really get a good feel for. You should do digital/grey/green/black on a white surface. Or another good way to display the colors and their interactions would be tie all your lengths in butterfly coils, and let some of the loops mingle. That way they'll stand out nice, and you can get an idea of what they'll look like next to other color options.

    I'd also suggest that you offer them for free, but only to female through hikers !

    It's been a romping good business success story for Cabbagehead's alcohol stove venture.

    I have a dumb question...
    (Yes, I have many.)
    What is the survival aspect of this other than it's potentially usable cord?

    Then next, is there any multi-purpose functions to this bracelet?

    Survival only for cordage.
    As far as multitasking, alone not sure but I can incorporate a watch or compass or pretty much anthing small enough.
    And remember there are no dumd questions only dumb people.

    Hmmm. Now I'll have to think about what I can get in that single weave...
    I will have floss and a watch. I bookmarked you.

    Oh yeah, You can hang a trapped mouse with it.
    It is a great conversation starter.
    What about being a tourniquet in bleeding emergencies?

    Seriously, It is absolutely beautiful.Congratulations to the shop owner for the great idea.

    I am tempted to thru-hike just to have one of them.

    I am trying to figure out how to trap the mouse with it before I hang it.
    Hanging it is the simple part you Kook.
    You probably can buy one if you promise to sleep outdoors with it sometime.

    Some cordage and sticks and a big rock will make a trap

    Simple: Put the bracelet on the floor of the shelter, when the mouse is scratching its head to figure out what the heck is this new thing you hit it with a bat but not a harsh hit, just enough to confuse the mouse. Got it?

    How do I catch the bat? And aren't they just sort of flying mice?

    You can use your your trekking pole instead of a baseball bat. The OP will curse me since It is a nice thread and I am turning it to a humor one. Anyhow, If you are from the group of hikers who don't use poles then please do not sleep in shelters. ..

    I want to order one, but I'm torn on the color choices, so it's making it difficult. Bah!

    It is very hard to choose but my choice has been gray and orange and my brother is thinking about blue and red mix. Like you he is undecided and asked for time so yeah it is not easy. I have been in love with this mix since my childhood so for me it was easy . My choice is already on photo.
