Hi, this is my first Instructable so bare with me.

The Paracord Strap Wrap is a simple way of tidying up loose ends on your gear using various lengths of paracord. Using paracord instead of things like cable ties has its obvious advantages to any paracord fanatic. Depending on the amount of the strap you want to cover and the thickness you want to make it you can use anywhere between 2 or 3 meters up to 15. Below is a quick 5 minute one that i did with about a meter of cord on my Maxpedition Monsoon Gearslinger.

Step 1: Step 1

Now i have found that in most of my out door type gear, any webbing strap that is stitched up at the end has a small enough gap to fit a single length of paracord through. The easiest way to do this is with a cable tie. 
little bit short from my bracelets left
easy enough
Yeah, agreed w/ what PKTraceur said, above. I didn't notice the quality of the pictures (at first) because I was ntent on following the thread of the I'ble. Only afterwards did I think &quot;Yeah, that's right!&quot; <br> <br>The pictures were: <br>a.) well &amp; evenly-lit, <br>b.) sharply focused on their subject, and <br>c.) the shots were taken from a point close enough to their subject, that extraneous details were out of the frame completely. <br> <br>This helped make an interesting I'ble easier to follow. You can have your cell-cams; give me a good point-n-shoot, or *SLR any day!
Agree w/ PKTraceur re: pictures. I wasn't aware of the photos (at first) because I was intent on following the thread of the article. Only *afterwards* did I think: &quot;yeah, that's right!&quot;; the pictures were: a.) well &amp; evenly lit, b.) sharply focused on their subject, and c.) simplified (shot close enough that extraneous details were out of the frame). This makes it so easy to understand &amp; follow. <br> <br>I wish more I'ble authors would do that. You can have your cell-cams; give me a *SLR or quality point-n-shoot any day!
Please vote for it in the competition if you like it. Thanks :)<br>
did you do 2 passes on this on? looks more solid than the other pics
Yes i did 2 runs, one on top of the other.
Wow, going to try that on all my bags. Great idea, thanks for putting it up.
Glorious. Just glorious. My bag has a strap with no padding. This will become a future resource for all my strap-wrapping needs.
Awesome! Very clear pictures.
