How do I know what size bracelet I need?

Measure your wrist and add approximately 1", depending on how you want your bracelet to fit.  This is the size bracelet you will want to order unless you want it very tight or very loose.  A soft tape measure or a piece of string works great for this!

If you are the kind of person that wears your bracelet when you shower or swim, size up a litle more.  Paracord shrinks a bit when it gets wet.


How do I know what size necklace I need?

Please note that if you purchase a necklace that is made of cord, it will shrink about 1" when it gets wet.  Because of this, I size up our necklaces with cord a little bit, so that if you wear them in the shower or while swimming in a scenic mountain lake, you won't be surprised when they get a bit smaller!


16":  This size fits pretty close around your neck.  Almost choker length.  

18":  Fits nicely in a v-neck tee shirt.  Guys, this is the smallest you should go.

20":  Usually reaches the top of your cleavage.  Also a good length for the guys.

22”: A longer necklace that hangs nicely on a shirt or sweater.

24”: Hangs mid chest.

If you get a necklace that has micro cord and a button toggle closure, you can adjust the length.  Just tie another knot next to the button toggle, trim off the excess, and melt the knot a tiny bit with a lighter.  Don't burn yourself!
