Parawallet: ‘Survival’ In Your Back Pocket

The Parawallet ensures you’ll never leave home without paracord again… as long as you don’t forget your wallet.

The Parawallet is exactly what you probably expected it to be — a wallet constructed entirely from paracord. Over 50 feet of the stuff, to be exact.

To up its “survival” cred even more, the wallet has a ferrocerium fire-starter rod weaved inside as well as tinder concealed within its tag. The paracord is rated to hold 550 pounds.


If you find yourself in a dire situation, simply unravel the wallet and use the cord for whatever purpose you may need it for, from shelter building, to a sling, to gear fixes, to snaring an animal, we suppose.


Though a bit silly as a true survival product, the Parawallet is actually not a bad idea as a billfold. The stout cord weaved into a wallet shape is comfortable in the pocket and should be durable enough to last for years.

It’s a standard size wallet and will fit most currency and cards. It comes in multiple colors for the fashion-concerned survivalist.

The Parawallet is made in the USA and available now on the company’s Kickstarter page for $35.
