It's a Survival Bracelet... for geeks. Armoured full protects the wire.


Description [Hide]

Everyone is familiar with paracord bracelets - the cleverly woven wearable survival device that instantly unravels into many meters of useful and super strong nylon cord in case of necessity. These are useful for outdoorsy types, but what if you are an indoorsy type with a lot of electronic emergencies? Or a geek in need of a bright wrist decoration that shows off your geekness?

The Solarbotics Repairacord™ Electronics Survival Bracelet is what you need (complimentary pun included). Woven using traditional quick-release paracord weaves, it unravels in seconds, but instead of a regular electronically-inept nylon cord,  it packs about 1.2m (4') of a high-quality 24-gauge 40-strand silicon wire. It's wonderfully flexible and surprisingly wearable against the skin.

But should we say (infomercial style) wait - there's more! What good is wire if you can't utilize it properly? For ultimate electronics confidence, you'll find inside of each bracelet's core a payload sleeve containing a 15cm (6") length each of 3mm heat shrink and solder.

Now the only thing that you need is something to solder with. Out in the urban (or not so urban) jungle it could be a coin or a bare nail, which we have successfully tried. There's other hacks showing how to solder with a regular butane lighter.

So with Repairacord you are ready to repair the world - if you need to.

Each bracelet features:

  • 1.2M (~4’) of 24AWG, 40-strand tinned wire  in a superflexible silicone insulator
  • Up to 1.4M (~4.5’) of 550 LB Type III paracord (depending on the style/weave)
  • 16cm (~6”) of 1/8" heat shrink and lead-free solder in hollow paracord payload sheathe.
  • 2 quick release designs: sinnet and snake

Wearability:

The "Armoured" model takes the most effort to create, as we replace the internals of the paracord with the silicone wire. This makes for a bracelet almost indistinguishable from a traditional paracord survival bracelet, and fully protects the wire from any abrasion.

  • Advantages: Most traditional in appearance. Most robust. Disassembles into strands the quickest.
  • Disadvantages: Bulkiest bracelet. Takes an extra step to extract the wire out of the paracord sheathe after disassembly. No full paracord used - only the 200lb-rated sheathes for paracord applications. No obvious "geek factor" visible!

Color/Weave Selection:

We have a limited number in our first production run, where we've experimented with color combinations. Unfortunately, we're unable to list every type, but if you care to leave a comment with your order what color theme/weave you'd like, we'll select one that will most closely match your request.

We have two types of weave available: sinnet (first photo left bracelet) and snake (first photo right bracelet).
