550-paracord-mil-specIt has been way too long since a giveaway.  I apologize for that.  I have been extremely busy developing content for Nature Reliance School Online and have not been hitting the blog, and especially the gear reviews, hard enough.

While I was out making some videos I came across a paracord tree and thought I would pick a hank off of it to give away.  That is exactly what I did here today.  Watch this video and then follow the directions below the video to get in the running for some free paracord!

To get in the running do the following:

  • Comment on the blog something you have done or you could do in the future with paracord.
  • Subscribe to the Dan’s Depot Youtube Channel.
  • Share this blog piece on any social media platform that you use such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram.  Don’t worry if you do not do social media.  We trust our followers and supporters to continue to do all they can to get the word out.

We will let this run for a week and pick a winner next Friday.  To get notified of ALL our giveaways, sign up for the Dan’s Depot mailing list.

As always with Nature Reliance School….come on join in, let’s learn together!

    Love Rothco brand cord, I tried making a paracord belt the other day, but that ended up in failure, lol.

    – While I was walking home yesterday, one of my backpack straps torn off, so I just tied it off with some paracord.

    – Went camping, took my regular The North Face bag I usually leave on campus and tied my sleeping bag on top and the tent on bottom. [Apparently I looked suspicious walking off campus at night and got stopped by security, haha. ]

Paracord is essential for these kits in so many applications and any time I can find a deal on it is a bonus for me (since the pharmacy gets most of my money lately!).

    All good uses listed above. I probably go a little heavy on materials like paracord in my bag and since I don’t like to wait ’til the last minute, I’d probably split this 100 feet into two 50 foot sections, hanked with a bowline on each end I could use for a tarp ridgeline. Hope I win!

    I have been camping many times with my motorcycle. Sometimes on route to wherever I will be camping , I often need to stop , and spend the night along the way. One of my favorite things to do, is to run a piece of para cord between two trees, and throw a tarp over the para cord, Instant Tent, either for just spending the night, or just to get out of the rain. I am in the process of making a new hiking staff, maybe two. It is easy to wrap several feet of para cord around the hiking staff where you intent to grip the hiking staff, as well as to carry a hank, or two in your gear somewhere. For all of you hikers, and back packers, always bring a tarp, ground cloth with you, along with some para cord. In an emergency, you can even use some cut up little pieces for tinder. Did I mention, it is great for guy wires too. Good Luck, from one Happy Camper, to another. Tvcaveman

  87. DaveM

    Mighty fine bootlaces. And if you need cordage, you can breakdown the paracord, use the inside pieces to hold a shelter together or what have you, and STILL have mighty fine bootlaces from the “shell” .

    Remember, you’re lifting the weight of your bootlaces every time you lift your feet. Replacing them with paracord does not change that weight at all. Makes for one less thing to put in your pack or survival kit. Depending on the height of your boots, you should be able to carry 6–9 feet of paracord in this way and not even know it’s there until you need it.

    In Hot Weather camping, for a length of Paracord between two trees, drap a Tarp over the Paracord line and stake down at least the 4 corners with shorter lengths of paracord. Afterwards you can set up a hammock and stay bone dry in the rainy season.

    I use para cord in my highschool engineering class. I teach the kids how to make bracelets, lanyards and monkey fists.

    We are a large, outdoors family. Such cordage has many uses as we learn about survival and practice our skills. We would make some survival bracelets.
    Thanks for the chance to win some paracord.

    I used about twenty feet of para cord to pull start a vehicle when we were out fishing and didn’t have jumper cables it lasted just long enough to start the vehicle.

    I use paracord for so many different things when we go camping (tying down tarps, clothes line for drying clothes, tying tent down).

    I’ve made many bracelets for friends, family and to be auctioned of for various benefits. I have some in my “get home bag” in my truck. Reading through the comments so far, I like the idea of wrapping my flashlight handles. Would have to try that next!

    I use paracord for shoe laces in both my boots and my work shoes. I have also used for bracelets, wrapping knife handles and securing carpet to the steps of my camper. Keep paracord and bankline in all my kits!

    I attempted to make a lanyard to hold my pistol while I am sitting on a public toilet, I felt it was to bulky.

    Paracord and duct tape are two of my favorite tools to work with. I still have a few buckles left over that I can use to make survival bracelets.

    I once made a Monkey Paw, using 5 pennies instead of a steel ball. I glued the pennies together, then wrapped them with the Paracord. It made a real nice pull chain ornament for my ceiling fan.

    Its a EDC when we camp or hunt. Last time we used it for a simple clothes line to dry my husbands clothes after he fell into the river. LOL Also have used it for tying and holding temporary shelters when a storm approached.

    The most recent thing I’ve used paracord for was a tether for my GoPro to my motorcycle.

      I would also like to add that the inner strings have many uses as well. I used the strings for fishing, tying branches together… you name it!

    I’ve been looking for some camo netting but it seems to be very expensive and not the right size I need, so I would like to try and make my own! The par cord would be the first product I need, then to buy some fake leaves and such to accomplish this task!

    I would use the paracord for tarp tie-downs, maybe a hammock, clothesline at the river, keychains, dog leash, thigh-tie for my survival knife sheath…

    We made paracord bracelets with Scouts and use them for hanging things in our hammocks. Great videos, thanks for all the top tips

    My wife made me a nifty zipper pull in a cobra pattern & I replaced the laces on my everyday boots with paracord as well. I am planning to do this with all of my footwear as well as making some sort of lanyard to connect my EDC folder knife to the keychain clip on my belt. Have lost this knife a few times….LOL! I do also have a survival bracelet made with paracord but I bought it like that. I would like to try & make my own though. I did also see in a book how to make a dog collar & leash out of paracord as well. I am also still trying to decide if making bolos with paracord & golf balls will work or not. This is all over & above the standard things that most people do with it.

    I have confirmed that I am subscribed to the YouTube channel. I don’t really have a social media presence with this account, but I am working on it & will share things when I have that set up the way I want it. I do share right now though. Keep up the great work guys!

    I would use the paracord to tie down my makeshift rainfly over my hammock, to make paracord survival bracelets, and any other projects I can find to do with paracord.

    I am a sailor. I use Para cord for many projects on the boat. Holding down gear when the weather gets rough, lanyards for knifes, marlin spikes, and emergency tie downs.
    I have also used it when camping to hold down tents, tarps and secure equipment.
