The hottest item at the London Olympics?

When you think back to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, it seems like everyone wanted to get their hands on those red mittens with the maple leaf logo.

Mittens like these.

With that in mind, you might ask 'What could be the 'hot' item at the 2012 summer games in London?'

Maybe these bracelets!

Many of our USA athletes will be wearing these “Survival Straps”. Not only are they pretty cool, you can actually be put them to use if needed.

The “Survival Straps,” are woven paracord bracelets that can be unwound in an emergency situation to provide you with a durable length of rope. Really?

Who knows, maybe a volleyball player will have to fix the net?

What's more, a portion of the profits from each bracelet sold will go to support the U.S. Olympic Team, and will also give aid to wounded veterans through the Wounded Warrior Project.

Again, look for these "Survival Straps" on our athletes when they start competing at the Olympics July 27th in London.
