Welcome, you find your way to the one and only Backyard Hiker shop! The place to be to get your ultimate Backyard Hiker Paracord Bracelet (Backyard Hiker t-shirts are being designed as we speak!).
I started making the bracelets when I went on my first Backpack Trail in Kruger National Park. One of the items on the equipment list was a set of spare shoe laces. I had no intention to carry a set of these and started my search for alternatives, that’s how I discovered Paracord Bracelets!
Our exclusive Collection
A bracelet made with parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord). In an emergency situation you unravel the bracelet, and the cord can be useful for many tasks such as a fishing line, tourniquet, to make fire but also as spare shoe laces! This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during the 82nd Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
I bought myself some paracord and started weaving. Lots of swearing and practice later I am able to say I mastered the skills of weaving these “must haves”. I fine-tuned them and started experimenting with different models.
Each model is available in lots of different colors and they are all handcrafted for you in South Africa by yours truly, Peggy – A Backyard Hiker.
I never go hiking without one anymore!
