My custom paracord watchband by TriloTac! w/ tritium compass, reflective & glow in the dark tracers


#1
This is the custom 550 paracord watchband that I ordered form Trilobite Tactical (aka TriloTac).

You can customize your own Trilotac watchband for Pebble, here: http://shop.trilotac.com/Tactical-Watch-Band-Fits-Pebble-Smart-Watch-432474393847.htm

My band is a Trilobite weave, with black paracord primary, and a secondary paracord that has both reflective, and glow in the dark tracers! The accent rings are anodized red aluminum. The lugs and clasp are powdercoated black. Lastly, there is a waterproof compass that's wove into the band. The compass has glow in the dark markings, as well as three tritium vials for alignment and north, that glow all the time. The compass is very much like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Cammenga-Tritium-Wrist-Compass-Black/dp/B0016SRA58/

NOTE: The magnetic field of the compass, screws with the Pebble's magnetometer pretty bad, so I can't really use the new compass apps. So if that's important to you, don't get a watch band with a compass! I ordered this a year ago though, long before we had such apps.

The wrap I have, is a black Carbon Fiber SlickWrap: http://www.slickwraps.com/Black-Carbon-Pebble-p/sw-pw-cfblk.htm

The watchface I'm using is Glance: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=uk.co.finebyte.pebbleglance

Love the carbon fiber SlickWrap, it goes great with your TRILOTAC band. Think I’ll pick one up for my pebble.

This looks awesome! I’m going to order a Paracord band now just because I saw this.

Tempted, but bit too expensive and no more red rings like yours

He still does custom orders. I'm positive you could still get red rings if you asked, and it probably wouldn't cost anything extra.

Hi Protonus, can you remember what color of black paracord you ordered? I cannot find it in their selection of paracords, is it “Black /w Grey X”? Thanks.

I mention it right in my first post here:
"black paracord primary, and a secondary paracord that has both reflective, and glow in the dark tracers!"

It's exactly that. It was a custom order, he might not have these colors mentioned on his website, or he may have ordered them just for me. If you're looking to do a custom order you should email him as I did. I actually talked to them on facebook messenger a number of times before my order.

Good for you, I contacted them through website and facebook, never replied =.=
