Great Gear Give-Away - The Winner

Congratulations to Joshua! Joshua is the winner of the Great Gear Give-Away at Stealth Survival! Here's Joshua's winning comment about the great ways to use 8 Strand 550 Paracord.

I’ve found 550 cord to be useful in a variety of situations; most notably for attaching my parachute to my harness when I was jumping out of airplanes in the Army! Aside from that though, it is great for tying things down and rigging tents, use as boot laces, tying up an animal to be butchered, etc. Most of these uses don’t require the full strength of the cord, and things can be tied down better usually after the cord has been “gutted” (interior strands removed). If you have enough pieces of long interior strands, they can be used to fashion a very usable fishing net (this was something I learned to do in the Army). In the Army I used it to tie important pieces of gear to myself or my pack in case they came loose.

It’s definitely one of those essential items I keep around. To me, it’s right up there with my Leatherman and a flint and magnesium fire starter for things that go in the pack for a camping trip or other outdoor excursion.
