The best, most elegant lanyards are made by Alexander in Sportsman’s Paradise, Louisiana. Alexander’s Outdoors offers a wide variety of lanyard styles and many categories of survival tools as well. Read about the lanyards and their many uses on his website. I use them on key-chains and leather bags, while my husband uses these elegant lanyards for easy deployment of rescue-tools and as zipper-pulls on his Barbour wax jackets. The material colours and combinations thereof are seemingly endless. Alexander’s prices are perfect for Elegant Survival: Stylish Living on a Shoestring.
