DIY Paracord Belt Every Prepper and Survivalist Needs
Why All Survivalists Must Have Their Own
You can wear a paracord belt for a casual, stylish look and also when camping, hiking, rock climbing, cycling or on many other adventures. This double-duty feature makes the paracord belt a versatile and a top-selling item.
In just a few seconds a properly made belt can be unraveled. And when an emergency presents itself, time is extremely important!
To take even quicker action, you can get a side release buckle so you’ll be able to easily remove the paracord belt.
The weave of the belt can make a difference in how quickly you can unravel the cord. So, you might want to get one such as the mock cobra weave which comes apart very quickly without having to untie knots.
You’ll usually get about 3 feet of cord for each inch of the belt. So for a 34-inch belt, you should have around 100 feet of cord to work with.
Something else to consider is to add 3 or 4 paracord belt loops to your belt, then you can use your belt loops to attach gear and it can provide a pretty strong anchor.
