Maybe this is an old idea, but I was thinking about swapping out my boot/sneaker laces with paracord so it is always with you and doesn't take up any more space to carry.

The idea is great but I am left wondering, "How do you braid the cord that way". A description of how to actually do it would be awesome.

Cobra and king cobra braids are easy. I have one around my wrist and one around my ankle at al times. My ten year old neighbor showed me how to do it. His father taught him back in cub scouts. Goggle how to make a cobra braid and hundreds of different sites will come up. Here's one:

You may have to gut the paracord to lace it through the holes(Eyes)
of your boots.

Cheers!

My Girlfriend gets Her Hair braided at the Beauty Shop. It looks a lot like Your pack.
I should tell Her to start using Paracord in Her Hair. It would last longer, and if
TSHTF we would have Miles of Cordage.

Cheers!
