What? A foot of paracord looped around and knotted for $10? Are you serious? I've seen thick Double Cobra weave bracelets with actual side-release buckles that don't sell for that much.
Hi,It's three bracelets and to buy the cord to make all three would probably cost more. I'm not sure about other bracelets but lots are being made in China and I make these here in the USA with USA made paracord. Thanks for looking though.
The US-made mil-spec 550 I buy is $8 per hundred feet. If you're paying $300 for a hundred-foot hank of paracord, I'm sorry to tell you that you're being ripped off.
Exactly. $8 x 3 is $24 for 3 bracelets and hundreds of feet of cord. For someone that just wants some bracelets and have no interest in hundreds of feet of cord, this is a great deal.
It's not a great deal for anyone, but I suppose we live in a country where you can charge whatever ridiculous price you want for the things you make, which is nice. I just hope people look elsewhere for bracelets that had more effort and material put into them before they buy.
I guess it come down to how much you're willing to spend to get what you want. Thanks for the conversation today.
