Book Review: Adventures in Paracord

[easyazon-image-link asin=”0983248133″ alt=”Adventures in Paracord: Survival Bracelets, Watches, Keychains, and More” src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/515QrSE1XzL._SL160_.jpg” align=”left” width=”100″ height=”160″] I recently had the opportunity to pick up a copy of [easyazon-link asin=”0983248133″]Adventures in Paracord: Survival Bracelets, Watches, Keychains, and More[/easyazon-link]. By the title you probably guessed that this book is pretty closely related to what we want to do with this web site.

The book itself has a lot of instruction in it, and at 130 pages is a pretty quick read. There are quite a few photos in the book, but I could personally have done with a little bit more instruction and step-by-step photos. Overall the book itself has a lot of variety, and is certainly geared towards those very in to hunting and fishing, myself included.


While overall a lot of this content can certainly be found online it’s nice to have it consolidated into a single place. It’s something that for me was a worthwhile buy considering it did have a few projects I haven’t seen before. Stay tuned for a few of those I plan to post in the near future too!

This book is available on Amazon here:

Bracelets with Parachute Cord

This is a great how-to I found on making a bracelet with parachute cord. This one I’ve actually modified a bit into a simple gear belt.  The instructions themselves are pretty easy, you just need the following items:

Build a Lanyard With Parachute Cord

I recently finished a really neat project using parachute cord. This came from Intstructables and uses a steel lanyard and some simple weaving to create some cool looking lanyards. I’ve attached a few of these to my pack to attach things like waterbottles, and anything else I take hiking with me. I’ve also used carabiners instead of lanyards since these are also a great safety item to have, combine with a little bit of basic climbing experience.

Pick up some [easyazon-link asin=”B004GIYC56″]parachute cord[/easyazon-link] from Amazon, along with [easyazon-link asin=”B00421S9W4″]some swivel snaps[/easyazon-link], or try to modify this with [easyazon-link asin=”B000CC1ANM”]using carabiners instead.[/easyazon-link]
