is a perennial survival kit favorite, but why carry a boring ol' hank of it when you can get crafty
? Parachute cord lanyards
, and other braided items are surprisingly easy and fun to make
by following some simple instructions
. But they're just the beginning! From water bottle carriers
and camera tripods
to knife handles
, Khukri conversions
, flashlight & stick wraps
, pace beads
, magazine pulls
, rifle wraps
and rifle slings
, there are tons of useful things you can make out of paracord!
What can you do with all that paracord, you ask? First of all, it's tough and lightweight rope that's great for use as tiedowns, bootlaces, and rigging. It's also useful for all sorts of survival tasks, including making a tarp shelter
, catching fish
, snaring animals
, building a field tripod
, and making a sling
. The inner strands are useful, too, as they can be removed and used as fishing line or sewing thread. Hurrah for paracord!
