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

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.
