My name is Mike and I’m the founder of Guardian Wraps/Quality Paracord Gear™. I am originally from Biloxi, MS but am living with my wife and 2 kids in Chattanooga, TN. I made my first survival bracelet while on my 3rd deployment to Qayyarah, Iraq with E FSC 215 BSB 1st Cavalry Division in 2008. We had tons of the stuff laying everywhere so I started making rifle slings, survival bracelets, handles for gun hatches and so on. I continued to make mostly bracelets while in Baghdad, Iraq but this time as a civilian contractor. Alot of the guys started wanting to buy them and what has happened since is history. I truly love making paracord gear, I love to keep busy and this is an excellent way to keep me busy. Plus, I love learning to make new things and see the reaction on my satisfied customers face! And Yes, I am wearing a Guardian Wrap in the picture!
