A friend gave me a "LoopRope" as a gift last month. This unique product rocks. I have used it in so many ways/things/tasks at home and outdoors, and I would highly recommend it.
I know most of the basics in knot tying, but I guess when SHTF, we don't have much time tying knots especially if we're always on the go on this kind of situation. And it sucks to cut down our para-cords just to use a few feet or so.
Here's a few images of its uses from their website: http://www.looprope.comLoopRopes are constructed of doubled up 1/4" Heavy Duty shock cord. They come in 3 foot, 4 foot and 5 foot lengths. Want a 10 footer? Then just buy two 5's and link them together. It's that simple.
Each LoopRope comes with two Military Grade stainless steel S-Clips. Additional carabiners are available for purchase. LoopRopes are available in a multitude of colors.
This will definitely be my para-cord's buddy inside the house and inside my BOB when SHTF.
I'm not in anyway related with the company. I just thought that a great gear should be shared to other people, especially SB guys whom I know would see this rope as a tool, not just another rope in your garage or BOB.
