If you've ever been on a hike or gone backpacking, you know just how useful it is to have things clipped onto your belt/pack. Unfortunately, not everything has a built in carabiner...which either means you can't bring something or you're gonna have to hold it the whole time.  Enter the paracord. Not only will wrapping your much needed items give you a better grip, but it can provide an anchor point to clip onto. 

  You can wrap just about anything in paracord: knife handles, water bottles, flasks, e-kits...etc. Once you wrap it, you can add a key ring, make a lanyard knot/loop, or improvise any other kind of attachment device. So now you're hands free and have some extra paracord handy!

Check out some  of these fellow 'ibles for different ways to wrap some common items:

Please tell me what gauge crochet hook would be used for this project.
If you're looking to make something like in step five, i used a relatively large crochet hook. unfortunately, it doesn't have any markings on it so i don't know the actual size. <br> <br>but hopefully this picture helps for comparison. The green hook is a size 9 or &quot;I&quot;, the red is a size &quot;J&quot;, and the gray one is the one i used. <br> <br>
you could knit or crochet it with pockets woven into it . make a survival vest/coat with all you survival gear in it and then it would be able to unravel to use for survival rope
Did you wrap a vibrator in paracord? *raised eyebrow*
no...no i did not lol. that's actually a plastic tube vault with a screw cap.
seeing the crocheted paracord made me think &quot;how about a paracord knit garment?&quot;
I thought about that as well. The only downside is that paracord tends to get kind of stiff the tighter you you weave it. But maybe if you gutted it first...? It definitely has potential
The paracord storage sinnet over at ITS is a military classic. One of my old platoon sergeants taught me about it a few years ago, and then I found it online. But this is the handiest, cleanest way to carry a LOT of papracord. <br> <br>http://www.itstactical.com/skillcom/knots/knot-of-the-week-paracord-storage-sinnet/
Ya that's a pretty sweet storage knot, i'll have to try that one out. Thanks for the link
