    Nothing major. I just thought I would share this to make some sort of contribution to the forum.

    I used one cord to make the length of strap to fit the user. I then completed a basic cobra knot for the full length. I left it about 1/4" short on each end for freedom of movement. However, this was made 8 years ago, and it appears the user has removed about 1" of cord from each end of the strap.

    The cobra is flat enough that it's actually very comfortable.

    How many feet of chord did it take to complete this? I am wanting to do this myself for my binocs.

    If I tried to tell you an exact measurement, I'd be lying.

    I think it was somewhere in the ballpark of 20 feet...ish.

    Sorry I can't be specific for you. It was so long ago I can't remember.

    all good brother, I found a video on how to make a rifle sling & I will use its measurements comparatively to figure out how much I need.

    Rule of thumb is that it takes one foot of cord to make one inch of the basic Solomon knots. If in doubt, tie one inch of a pattern, and then untie it and measure how many inches of cord it took to make one inch. Add a bit more to be on the safe side!
