Wow! This was even better than expected. Totally worth the wait to get the color I wanted. Have had multiple compliments on it already. Great communication from seller. Would happily buy from again!

Rugged Xessories are stylish shoulder straps, lanyards, bottle harnesses, belts, pet gear, gun slings, bracelets, anklets, key fobs and more! Every Rugged Xessory is made from 7 strand kernmantle 550lb. test and/or 100lb test nylon cord. Most commonly known as "paracord".

"Bring style to the outdoors" by wearing Rugged Xessories during everyday activities or while enjoying the great outdoors. If you end up in a pinch, you'll have a practical resource right on your person. Just unravel and use for whatever you can think of.

Rugged Xessories are custom handmade in the USA with materials from the USA.

Please follow these instructions closely for a comfortable fit. Our sizing system is specific to Rugged Xessories. if you go off a bracelet from another company for your size, your Rugged Xessories may not fit the same. Using a flexible measuring tape, measure snug against the skin and record the size in "inches". We make the necessary adjustments for comfort. You can also use a piece of string and measure the string with a ruler (string method will result in "looser" fit).

Please list your color choice in the "notes" area during checkout. This item can be made with up to two colors.

Welcome to Rugged Xessories!

We are a family business that is proud to encourage families to spend time together in the outdoors. Wether your family likes to camp, hike, fish, run, play ball or practice survival skills, we are confident we have a product for you. We encourage you to take advantage of our friendly customer service with any questions or concerns you may have at any time. We offer many styles of paracord items that enable you to "Bring Style to the Outdoors"!

-----We use paracord that is of the highest quality available. We have tested many different brands and types of paracord and only use real 550lb test paracord for our products. Beware of imitation paracord products. Imitation paracord has much lower breaking strengths and will typically rot after getting wet. Paracord products are everywhere and cheap imitation cord often sells for the same prices or higher, making it difficult to identify.
