Sailormade Nylon Bracelet

A solid brass brummel hook fastener, similar to the type used for more than a century aboard sailing vessels, holds this bracelet of genuine nylon sailing rope securely to the wrist. The polished silver finish allows this handcrafted sailor-made nylon bracelet to withstand the harshest elements, whether at sea or ashore. In dark green, orange. Made in USA.

First Defect,
August 20, 2014
By: Decomali
"I have 4 or 5 other Sailormade bracelets and this is the first one with a defect. End fell off first time I was going to wear it. Re-crimped it myself and did a poor job, unfortunate."

how to open the bracelet?,
July 16, 2014
By: CMG1
from NJ
"It would be very helpful if the bracelet came with instructions on how to open, or if the website had a short video showing us how to put the bracelet on and off. Can someone please explain this apparently "easy" process to those of us who are sailormade-challenged?"

"Problems that were in previous reviews seem to be corrected, and I enjoy this bracelet. Took appx. one minute to attach the clasp, and once you learn how to attach, you reverse the process to release it. Many compliments. Good buy!!"

I Wear It Everyday and LOVE It,
January 13, 2014
By: RobbieBurton
"It took me a minute to figure out how to put it on, but once I lined up the brummels in a cross (perpendicular to each other) it's really simple and easy to do.
I never wear bracelets because I bike ride and swim a lot, but once I saw that Sailormade's rope bracelets were water proof, I bought it and now wear it everyday.
The brummel clasp is so cool and has a legit history, and the orange rope is spot on. Best purchase."

Poorly made,
July 17, 2013
By: Roadmoose
"Bracelet looks nice. On only the second wearing the cord came out of the clasp. Putting the bracelet on also requires Houdini-like manual dexterity. Capping it off, Orvis is charging 20% more than the manufacturer's site. I suppose that is a positive because you will be returning the bracelet and you know Orvis will honor the refund."

"In my opinion 109.00 was way to much. I feel like a fool for buying this product. Its a cord with an inexpensive clasp."

Major disappointment!,
June 7, 2013
By: Butch50
from MD
"There should have been instructions on how the clasp worked, I was able to open/close the bracelet once using both hands. I retuned the bracelet after realizing I would never be able to put on or take off using only one hand."

Not ORVIS Quality,
June 4, 2013
By: RedOne
from Upstate, NY
"The SN Bracelet is nice looking and has an interesting design. However, it came apart after two days of wearing it. The nylon braid is secured to the clasps with glue and not very well."
