    Very nice.... I am pretty new at Paracord, but love that pattern... could you share it with me? Or possibly a YouTube or anything??? I live very remote in Alaska and pretty much have to make everything myself... the slings I have been making are turning out nice, but not anywhere near 2 inches wide.. mine are approx 1 1/4 in wide... not quite wide enough to be as comfortable for the extremely long hunts on foot that I make.

    How I prepare the sling

    if I want a 40'' long sling 2 para1100hd cords 81'' long
    melt the ends together, to make a loop, make 2 loops
    cut 1 piece of para1100hd 86'' long also melt the ends make a loop

    set the 86 aside
    and use 2 50' long cords to start the sling as shown above

    Wow... frodo, you are awesome..... unfortunately, there is no Walmart within a few hundred miles.... I live on Prince of Wales island in SE Alaska... a trip to town is a 2 hour truck ride followed by a 3 hour boat ride.. and that is one way.. lol.. our mail comes via float flame when the weather is good... so good logistical planning is imperative... no quick jaunts to the neighborhood Walmart.. but I will save all of this, and when the correct Paracord finally get here, in about 6 weeks, I will post pics.... .. till then, I leave you with these pics for your trouble....
