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.
Get the perfect fit for your bracelets by using these instructions. I need to know your wrist size -- not bracelet size.
I've made thousands of bracelets and know how to knot up your order for a comfortable fit. But I need you to take a moment to get the right measurement info to me.
Why we need your wrist size? Depending on the knot and clasp, I add the necessary length to your wrist size to ensure your bracelet will fit properly. Do not add extra space to compensate for a comfortable fit!
- 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 were 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.
We manufacture this Mil Type 1 style cord to our specs with a 4 strand core and 16 strand cover delivering a whopping 275 pound test break. We call it 275 Tactical Cord and it's some tough stuff.
