Hand-Made Survival Bracelets: Giveaway

I know it has been a while my friends, but here we go with another great giveaway here on Southern Utah Hunt and Fish.  Before I get to the details, let me give you a little background on today's product!

Louie Bernardo of Escalante, Utah approached me the other day with the idea to share his handy work with you on our site: hand-made bracelets in a variety of colors and styles that double as a nice piece of survival gear for any outdoors enthusiast.  Louie braids these handy little items out of "parachute cord" using a variety of colors to best meet your personality or needs.  So, just what will a bracelet do to help you with outdoor survival?  These braided bracelets are constructed from a few feet of this parachute cord, and let me tell you from experience, this tough material can have several uses in emergency situations in the outdoors!

How about some strong boot laces if yours happen to break?  Or maybe enough cord to secure a bandage for someone with a serious injury, or to build crude tools, or maybe it will be the means to catching your dinner?  The possibilities are endless, and a bit of rope or cord should be on our list of survival gear!

These bracelets are very stylish and comfortable.  In fact, most of the guys on my fire crew sport bracelets somewhat similar to these beauties that Louie makes, but lack the awesome colors and patterns that Louie can put together...(white is the only color our poor crew has available!).  I'm sure these will be a big hit with our guys this summer, and it's definitely an item we should all have on us or in our gear when we hit the back country.

Color options: I'm personally a big fan of the camo!
Louie offers his bracelets in a variety of colors (see photo) and in a couple of different styles, for only $7.00 each.   If you wish to purchase, please shoot me an email detailing the colors and style of your choice (as seen in the photos), as well as the measurement around your wrist.  Measure it loosely, but against the skin.  Louie will add a little extra on the length to fit your wrist comfortably.  I will be posting this product information on our "products" tab on the home page, with pay pal instructions soon.  For now, email me the details of your order and we will work out payment information over email.

Now for our giveaway!  Louie, an avid outdoorsman and longtime friend of mine has offered up 2 bracelets to giveaway to 2 lucky viewers.  As in the past, we will give away one bracelet to an individual that comments on this post, and another that comments on our Facebook thread (  Look for the comment on the contest there, and leave your comment below to enter.  You may enter both here on the blog, and on the Facebook page.  The contest will close at 5:00 PM MST, next Monday, May 7th.  A random number generator will choose our two winners that evening.
