This bracelet combines both our exclusive 275 Tactical cord with Mil Spec 550 cord to mimic the original medal’s ribbon. The outside edge is 550 Imperial Red and encases 275 Navy, 275 White and a 550 Yellow center.
National Defense Service Medal Paracord Bracelet
My National Defense Service Medal bracelet was by request from military service Heroes who, while not serving “on the ground”, were critical support to our troops and our country’s missions. We were happy to oblige and this has turned into quite a popular bracelet!
Comes with our durable contour buckle.
- First, you'll need a ruler, a pen or pencil, and a strip of paper about a half-inch wide.
- Wrap the strip of paper lightly around your wrist.
- Mark the piece of paper right where it meets the starting point.
- Then measure that length on a ruler. Now you know what size to order!
All of my products are made to order by me right here in the U.S.A. with mil-spec MIL-C-5040H type III requirement cord and have a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds (550 cord).
Not all paracord is created equal -- especially the sub-par cord from overseas. My 550 parachute cord comes from the same U.S. factory that is a government contractor to supply the military, so quality is assured. We use the actual paracord our service men and women rely on every day!
There is approximately 1" of paracord for every inch of knotting. This does vary slightly depending on the knot. If you were to disassemble your item you could use the cord and the strands within for all kinds of outdoor and, yes, survival applications.
With that said, USPS is even more inefficient than usual. Plan on extended delivery times once your order is on the way. You will be provided a tracking number so that you can keep an eye on your package as USPS plods along.
Due to the amount of knotting required on larger orders and dog leashes, these orders will take more time, so plan on an additional 7-10 days. If you have a specific in-house date don't hesitate to reach out and let us know!
