10 Paracord Projects for Survival


Whether you are looking for some cool paracord projects to pass your time or you are looking at creating something that can save space in your kit, we are sure you will find something in the list below. These paracord projects for survival range from beginners to advanced but once you get the hang of it, you will be creating your own stuff in no time.

1. Paracord Belt

If a paracord bracelet just doesn’t provide you with enough paracord when you need it, a paracord belt certainly will and this one will give you just over 100′ of paracord. You end up with a cool looking one and three quarter inch wide paracord belt with removable 3000lb carabiner at one end and a 2500lb triangle D-ring at the other. When needed, the whole belt comes apart with a quick undo of the knot hidden behind the D-ring, giving you just over 100′ of paracord. You can find the instructions for this paracord belt here.

2. Paracord Rock Sling

I am sure that you know the story of the biblical battle between David and Goliath. The story is that a shepherd, David, equipped only with a sling, defeated the warrior champion Goliath with a well-aimed shot to the head. The story illustrates two important aspects of a sling: Its a simple low-status weapon, and in the hands of an expert, it can be devastatingly effective.
