We are proud to introduce the ParaWallet paracord wallet, hand-crafted for survival!

ParaWallets was born from the idea that if you have a credit card survival tool you might as well have the perfect wallet to carry it in.  Always with you, ParaWallets are made from over 50 feet of 550lb 7-strand parachute cord with a ferrocerium fire starter rod built in, so you can take on whatever the world throws at you.  It's the first of its kind and Kickstarter is the only place it will be available until after the campaign.  Be one of the first to carry survival in your pocket, and get it cheaper than it will be at retailers.

Features:

  • Over 50 feet of emergency paracord for tying up shelter, fishing, making tools, repairing clothes and anything else the situation requires.  Paracord is an incredibly strong, lightweight and versatile material originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes.  See the graphic further down the page for 20 other suggestions on how to use paracord in a survival situation.
  • Fire steel, steel emblem and tinder (concealed inside tag) to start a fire anywhere.  See the video below.
  • A perfect fit and a perfect match for your favorite Survival Card (Survival Card not included).
  • Additional sizes available for international currencies.
  • Hand-crafted for survival.
  • Made in the U.S.A.

You never know when you're going to need it. Have it with you whenever you leave home.

Kickstarter Exclusive

We wanted to reward you for your support, so we've added just a little thank you for getting your ParaWallet here first. With your Kickstarter pledge you will be given the option to have any two initials you want on the logo emblem, instead of the "PW" that retailers will have.

Show your support and show off your own custom ParaWallet to the world.

Near-Limitless Color Combinations

ParaWallets can be made in a near-limitless combination of colors and patterns.  Carry a wallet that shares your unique style or shows off your wild side.  Get one to show support for your favorite sports team (and a second one for their away colors!).  Or geek out with your choice of super-hero inspired designs. 

ParaWallets can be made in a single color, or in combinations of two, three, or even four colors.  Below is just a small sampling of color choices.  The only limit is your imagination.

After the end of the campaign, you'll receive a survey to gather your shipping information, but you'll also be able to provide your color choices for your ParaWallet.  Browse through the available colors and patterns below and take note of your combination.  (You can always send a private message with your choice once you've pledged and we'll keep track of it for you!)

Risks and challenges

The greatest cost of making each ParaWallet is time. The ParaWallets team is currently only 5 people based in Phoenix. We expect all early bird ParaWallets to be delivered on time, with First Delivery to be shipped within the first few weeks after the campaign ends, on a first come first serve basis.

Our biggest challenge will come if we greatly exceed demand beyond our expectations. We have plans in place to increase production if this should happen, and over-succeeding is frankly a problem we won't mind dealing with.
