    Parachute cord

    Guys,

    I'm looking to secure a between 100 and 200 feet of parachute cord. I'm planning on storing it with my search and rescue and wilderness evac EMS backpacks.

    Does anyone have a decent source? Somewhere I can order online? Or any suggestions where I might get some locally?

    Thanks guys,

    Jim

    A tip....

    When camping out in the wilderness I usally carry a big sheath knife...a Cold Steel TrailMaster to be exact. I wrap about 20 feet worth of paracord around the sheath. Its simple and always there when you need it. I cant tell you how many times that has come in handy...

    Since you most likely will have at least a small sheath knife in your EMS pack, it'll save you some space and time trying to find it.

    The "Sportsmans Guide" also sells rolls of it in various colors.
