Made my first Paracord Strap! Photo

Recommended Posts

I was browsing the page today and found the Cobra Stitch link, http://funditor.110mb.com/wiki/index.php/Cobra_Stitch_-_Bracelet. I decided to put it to use!

 

I know its not the best, but it was my first one, so gimme a break, haha. I have been wanting something other than the standard string that came on the sheath to tie around my leg. I decided to make a paracord leg strap. I ended up using right at 23 feet of cord. If something happens to me while I am out hiking/camping, I will have quite a bit of cordage to use, not to mention the other items I will be adding this to soon. Thanks for looking.

I know i need to cut the ends yet, but i am trying to see if I can weave them back through so that I have a little extra cordage. All depends on how it looks.

 

Sorry for the crappy picture, but i'm beat for work and really didn't feel like doing anything else.

Looks really good gr8. I had originally thought of making one of those for my knife sheath for the express reason of having the extra cordage but I was affraid it would be too inflexible and would end up being too loose or cutting off the circulation to my leg while climbing. Let me know how that works out for you, I still may make a couple of them.

Thanks everyone.  I tried it on this morning when i got up at 5 and it was just a tad too tight!  :rant: haha. So I quickly took it apart and added about 1.5 inches so i would have room to move in it. I'm glad i hadn't cut the ends yet, that would have been rough.  My knots are a lot tighter on it this time as well.

 

I hear that these are good places to get supplies from for this. I haven't tried them yet, but will most likely be ordering from them in the near future.

Good links.  There's limited resources for paracord where I am. All the duck hunters keep buying it up for their decoys, from the only place that sells it.  I'll give these a try.

Very cool, gr8outdrsmn!!  I just got a 100-yard spool of paracord from Sportsmans Guide for $11.97.  On the website it's listed for $24.97...I don't know what's up with that, maybe just a special in the catalog I had.  I'm planning on playing around a little with it, going to see about doing some of these.

Good luck. It seemed a little tough right at first, and now it is already like second nature, 2 days later, haha.  All it is is repitition.

Yup, gets extremely easy.  I just made myself another bracelet, I may take it apart though.  I think I am going to try to make a strap for my backpack sometime, just need more paracord.

Also wrapped my walking stick handle, but was unhappy with it (it made the grip a little too big for an extended hike) so I took it off for now:
