Finally the correct answer. Thanks "Blacked"!!! While I was in Recon we used 550 all the time. We would create wraps to go on our Boonie covers, on our packs, dummy cords for gear (so if you dropped gear from your pack such as a compass, knife, etc, it wouldnt be gone forever, just until you realized it got loose). It was easy to get in the military because it is widely used for parachutes. Hence the term parachute cord. When you see a parachute on tv, it's the lines going from the jumper to the chute (the ones you always see people get wrapped up in).

The cord is extremely tuff and ive NEVER seen this cord be broken/torn. This is actually a substitute for duct tape regarding holding hum-v parts on a hummer in the field. This should be a must for camping or offroading. I always carry a couple hundred feet with me.

With the end result looking like this

I've been wondering how to get this done. Thanks for the pics!

Ok this is probably a stupid question but did you use 27 feet in total or did you use 27 feet per strand used? Sorry I don't read good.

also what are the straps you are using to strap it to the jeep itself. I have been doing research on what to use and seem to be having no luck at all
