    Go on you tube look up paracord donut. You can hold 50 to 100 feet at least easily in a small easily distributed ring.

    I have about 60 feet in a donut in my get home bag. Works really well. I also made a paracord bracelet with 8 or 9 feet of cord. Some of the weaves are not quick deployable. The one I used will come apart in a matter of seconds if I need to replace a boot lace or tie up a rampaging tree rat.

    I braided about 100 ft into a rifle sling. I have 2 now. IMHO I think it's the best way to carry emergency supplies of paracord.

    A daisy chain weave is easy, quick to do, and comes apart quick. Some other weaves are more complicated to do and take quite a while to take apart.

    Thanks man. I've been laughing to myself since thin nylon clothesline became colored and "tactical," and been thinking about what people are gonna do for a knife handle, watchband, and now a rifle sling, etc., when they USE that paracord someone basket-weaved for, well, the string that it is...

    "I'm so prepared I have a backup knife with an old-fashioned built-in handle on my belt." "In case the SHTF I carry a spare GI issue rifle sling in my carbon-fiber internal frame MOLLE backpack next to the cans of Dinty Moore. That P-38 is a classic military tool -- I have one in my mess kit and always carry one on my keychain. Booya!"

    I'm not making fun of anyone here by the way guys, just being absurd...

    Thank you, that's the braid I used on my rifle slings (I guess I should say "weave"). I wasn't sure what it was called. But to second your post, yes, the daisy chain weave is a great sling IMHO.

    We daisy chain our webbing in our rope rescue bags at the fire dept. It works good to keep them untangled and quick to use. It isn't the best if you want to keep it compact. The donut is very compact, that is what I like about it. Smaller cord can quickly get into a nightmare of a mess unless it is handled right and I don't want that to happen in my bag.
