How To Unweave Your Paracord Belt For Emergency Cord

Each RattlerStrap Titan Belt contains 80+ feet of 550 Type III 7 strand paracord. If your in a situation where you need to use the paracord from your RattlerStrap belt, start at the rattle end and unsecure the caps. These belts are not designed for quick deploy, but you can use the buckle pin to loosen the inner cross weaves to speed up the unweaving process.


Men’s Journal Totally Called It

On a recent backpacking trip, the weather turned, and we ended up chillier than expected. We gathered some dry leaves and pine and fir needles. By striking our shoelace with the back of the steel blade of our pocketknife, we were able to light a campfire.


More Than Just A Belt

The philosophy of use of paracord based gear has always been a smidgen controversial in the survival community.

OFFGRID | Replacing Gear You Take For Granted

“We’ve said many times how a supply of strong cordage can make or break your survival plans. With good quality 550 paracord, you can rig a tent, make a fire bow, set snares, go fishing, repair gear, and much more. There are many creative places to store paracord, including boot laces, a bracelet, and an axe handle wrap. However, none of these allow for storage of very large amounts of paracord. A line of belts developed by Rattlerstrap fulfills this purpose, while also replacing a piece of gear that you may otherwise take for granted.”

The Story of RattlerStrap

On a backpacking trip through Thailand I became obsessed with the concept of less is more. I was traveling solely out of a 26 liter Goruck GR1 backpack, so there was no room to spare and every article of gear, clothing, and personal hygiene had to be absolutely essential and, if possible, serve dual purposes. My wife made some paracord bracelets during this trip and I was impressed with how well they held up. They also offered me a second potential emergency-use cordage.


Military and Survival | Titan Belt Review


Fit for Survival: You have 80-130 feet (dependent on belt size) of cord that can be used for snares, tourniquets, shelters, tie lines, rappelling, or stripped down to smaller threads for sewing, stitching, or fishing wire. You’ll always be prepared.

Fit for Travel: The titanium buckle is non-magnetic which allows this belt to pass through TSA metal detectors undetected.

Fit for You: The days of poking holes in your warped leather belt will be in the past as this belt is infinitely adjustable.

“The RattlerStrap Paracord Belt is a nicely made and very cool product. Mine fit well and looks nice, and in an emergency situation you get between 80-130 feet of paracord.”

The Blaze Knows Whats Up

“They might look like an ordinary pair of shoelaces, but they actually might mean the difference between a cold night outdoors and warmth with a hot meal.”

Ask any self-proclaimed outdoorsman what’s the most important element of surviving the wilderness, and odds are, he’ll say redundancy in all things — if one tool fails, it’s essential to always have some sort of a backup (and maybe even a backup for your backup).
