The current trend for thick, chunky paracord bracelets continues unabated. So here's a new take on this perennial favourite — a bracelet made not with Paracord but with I-Cord instead! Not only are these a hot fashion statement, they can also be made into medical alert bracelets by attaching an engraved ID tag.
