Paracord is one of the most versatile and vital tools in any survivalists tool kit. Durable and lightweight, it has literally hundreds of uses.
In this case, we explain how to make a lightweight, but rugged carrier for those softer survival items like blankets or even a bundle of clothes.
Step 1: Prepping the materials
1. Measure the cord. You will need 2 strands; 1 – 10′ length for the strap; and 1 – 7′ length for the handle.
2. Cut 2 – 7″ pieces from the wire hanger and mark the middle (aprox 3.5″).
After you cut the wire, mark the center point.
3. Cut 2 equal lengths of tube from the pen casing. I recommend using lengths that are around 1 1/2 “.
4. Melt the ends of the pen casing to give them a smooth feel so that it will not wear away at the cord.
