Its a little bulky but I think it will soften up after some use. There is a round piece of metal you can see in pic 4 under my pinky that is bothersome. Not sure what that's for , not a fire starter. I took off the watch that came on it and put my LL Bean field watch on instead.

I have a paracord bracelet with similar firestarter clasp... it is kind of cool, but too bulky to carry and it tends to pinch... It's like carrying a turned-over G-Shock 110  :D

I keep seeing those advertised on FB and I keep dismissing them as cheapo junk.  I look forward to hearing how you get on with it.

The one with the side of the band is cheapo junk , the fire starter on the end works fine.

I've seen problems with those paracord watch straps.

as soon as you use the paracord in an emergency (if that's what it is really for) you have to carry all that stuff in your pocket and might loose them. Better to have a few of things for an emergency in a little belt pouch (inc. some paracord) ;)

cheers, John
