  I wouldn't carry anything else in my pack or pocket. When it comes to the best, it doesn't get any better than this.

  This Paracord seems very good so far. Also, it was delivered swiftly and with minimal packaging, which I appreciate. Thank you.

  What can I say. It's paracord. But it is good quality paracord, and that makes all the difference. Always nice to have a bit of extra cord with you when out and about.

  My shoelaces are now made of this and have then used those for bowdrill cordage. Not bad at all! The only tricky bit is burning a decent seal at each end with a lighter.

  Not used it yet, but it looks the business! Will obviously have many applications from shoe-laces to load-bearing.

  Well, it does what it's supposed to. Can't and don't need to say any more than that.

  Really nice Paracord! Very high quality. Incredibly strong. I ordered mine to put some new laces on my boots. This cord can be broken down to use for many, many other things - bowdrill, net-making, traps, snares, slings, trotlines, you name it. Another great thing about Paracord is that there are 7 inner strands, which means any nicks on the outer case will not damage the cords integrity and strength. Fantastic delivery from Woodlore as always - best delivery I've come ascross!
