Here at the Ultimate Adventure Company (Pty) Ltd we custom build every paracord bracelet based on your exact measurements. In order for our team to build your bracelet appropriately, we ask that you follow the following steps on how to measure your wrist for a paracord bracelet:
- Take a tape measure, string or a piece of tape and wrap it around your wrist to where the two ends touch and there isn’t any slack. Keep in mind that this doesn’t need to be so tight that it cuts off your circulation, but merely a true measurement of your wrist size without any slack.
- If using string or a piece of tape make a mark where the two ends touch and measure this against a ruler to determine your true size.
- If you’re making your own bracelet take the measurement and add on an addition 1.5 cm to 2.5 cm / 0.5 in to 1 in to cater for the thickness of the rope. This additional length to your measurement will vary depending on the thickness and complexity of the bracelet weave.
- Remember, when weaving your bracelet try and keep the tension consistent! If you weave your bracelet too tight it can throw out your measurements, and also it will feel uncomfortable when wearing it! (I always recommend crafting your paracord with the assistance of a jig. Jigs are awesome to keep things the right length and the cord tension right and consistent!)
Remember if you’re buying a paracord bracelet from us then order this exact size when checking out! You do not need to compensate for slack as we will do this when we build your paracord bracelet based on your true wrist size.)
Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions and we will gladly take you through the steps required to get your exact measurement.
