Some comments we received:
Comment #1: I made a paracord belt, different than this with a regular buckle. I’ve worn it for almost a year. It is very comfortable, the paracord softens up.
Comment #2: Too big. Wrap a hank of 50-100 feet of paracord around your backpack. I’d rather have a comfortable belt.
Comment #3: This is a great belt for hanging carabiners off of and then snapping gear to the carabiner, ie, hachet, cup, fire kit, metal water bottle, karadyn water purification bottle, etc,. The weight will be evenly distributed and leave you more room in your pack for other necessities. Love it ♥ I wrapped a military belt with paracord and made a utility belt of sorts doing this. I am going to try my hand at one.
Comment #4: Keep a knife handy. If that thing hooks on something you’re dead. Would be handy though if you found you needed some rope!
Comment #5: Well as a “belt” i dont think it would hold go throught my belt loops. However its a cool compact way to carry the rope. i could see using it as a sling or even shoulder straps on a pack. Good Job!
