Very nice! Thanks for information.
Nice idea... thanks for the vid
great way not to have a knotted up rats nest of paracord in your bag, takes time but worth it. good video
Really cool way to neatly store. Great video, gonna try it. Thanks
Google how to crochet a single row (I believe the term is a chain), and follow the directions for a doubled over piece of paracord. "Crochet" it loosely. You get a solid bundle that consistently comes undone easily. I first saw this trick done with 100' extension cords.
This is also a great way to carry a self-evac line. When you want to use it you just hold onto the bitter end and drop the doughnut down wherever you want to descend. The weight of the doughnut causes it to unravel.
Thats a fantastic way to carry cord. When he first started, I just thought he was going to "chain" the cord, in the way that you can "chain" ropes to stop them tangling, or use the same method to make lanyards, but Im very impressed with the Donut & I'll be replacing my whipped coils of cord carried in various bags & kits wth one of these.
Thanks for the link.
This is one of those 'now why didn't I think of that' scenarios. I guess it's 'cos I'm too dumb!
But now I know about it I'm gonna try it. Thanks Musky!
Okay. NOW Im a blummin' Donut-making MACHINE!!!
Ive already made three of the sodding things, & EVERY bag I own is gonna have one of these Paracord Donuts put in it. Thank you VERY much!!
The hardest part is remembering to alternate the loop from the inside & outside, so i find myself reciting "inside, outside, inside, outside" as I make them, but I can make a 50ft Donut in about 15-20 mins now.
Great vid. Thanks for sharing it!
He had me at donut, haha Definitely gonna call my spare paracord "donuts" from now on.
Nice video, thanks for the info.
