Bear Grylls Survival Lanyard

Six feet of high strength paracord is surprisingly useful. You can secure a splint, repair a blown out snowshoe binding or use it to lash timbers for a shelter or trap. With Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools and Bear Grylls’ adventure knowledge, the Bear Grylls Survival Lanyard is a simple, easy way to make sure that you always have 6 feet of paracord handy for the unexpected. There’s even a small emergency whistle built into the design for making distress calls or alerting others of danger.


Designed for everyday use, the woven lanyard makes a practical key chain or an unobtrusive addition to your backpacking kit. Potential uses for 6 feet of quality paracord are limited only by your creativity. Simply cut and unravel the cord to put it to use. It may be just the ticket for stringing up your survival blanket into a hasty shelter or hanging your food for the night in bear country.


At less than 1 ounce in weight, the Survival Lanyard will go unnoticed until you need it, and you know you will eventually need it. Life in the backcountry has a way of throwing curveballs your way. Adding the Survival Lanyard to your required packing list is an easy decision.

3 you know what im going to ask yeah - AUG 7, 2014

how the hell do get this thing untied

Got this in a set with one of the Bear folders. This is a cool little thing. The whistle blasts pretty loud, and it won't crack or break if you drop it (I dropped it on our asphalt driveway to find out.) The lanyard is strong, and can handle a good amount of pulling pressure, meaning you could use this to hang other gear (without taking it apart.)

My only complaint is that there isn't a surefire way to fasten this anywhere without using a keyring or something. I've taken to just putting the whistle part through the loop on the other side.
