This bracelet carries 10' of paracord and a stainless steel Fish Bone Gear Tie. It's simple to weave and even easier to deploy.

Caution: Never wear a bracelet around machinery or any situation where it could be caught or hung up. Severe injure may occur.
Step 1: Make 3 loops
Take 10' of cord and lay out three loops. The lengths in the picture are 9" long. They will be shortened later.
Take the long end and begin wrapping it around the two lower loops. You'll do a zig zag weave in between them.
Step 2: Keep it tight
As you're adding the weave push everything tight together. This helps fit all 10' onto the bracelet. Keep going until all the cord is used.
Step 3: Shorten the loops
Now that everything is in place you have to shorten all 3 loops. Start by pulling the single loop. That's the one on the right hand side of the picture. This will reduce the 2 lower loops. Once the lower loops are both about 1/2" long, thread one through the other.
Step 4: Add the fish bone
Thread the single loop side through the eye of the Fish Bone. Hook the loop over the front hook. Attach the other side to the tail. Make the final adjustment by pulling the tail end of the cord. Trim off the excess and melt the ends.
