Very Cool Survival Cordage

Got a package from Gearward the other day. Mark sells some really neat cordage and a few other items. He sent me several types of line for EDC and use in kits. This is obviously not a full review, just a little info about what I have been up to. Anyway, this line is Kevlar and has a 200lbs test strength. It is a 3 strand twist, and come on a compact spool. The spool has 60' of cord.


When it is broken down each strand will hold about 60lbs. Perfect for sewing,fishing,or other improvising projects. Look for a lot of projects with this and other cord Mark sent me.

  1. I saw him post about that stuff not long ago...should be interesting to see how it works out...I would like to see its ability to stay knotted. if that makes sense... Also if you dont mind see if it works well as a prusik on paracord.

    Thanks for taking the time to share with the community.

    1. I am going to use some of the 950lbs cord for shoe laces.I also have a secret plan as far as prusiks go.

  2. I have the micro. Its small enough to fit in a altoid tin PSK. I really like the container too; keeps it from unwrapping and tangling up. It also keeps it protected.

  3. Looking forward to the review of this. One can never have too much cordage.

  4. I have the micro and it is super small. It fits in the pocket of my ESSE 6 pouch. The other roll is in my MaxPed EDC and the bigger size went in my BOB. It is impressive stuff and the service from Gearward was great.

  5. Because the Marines have discontinued the ILBE ruck sacks (only because they don't work with their new webbing and body armor and not because they didn't like them) there are a ton of them hitting the market. They seem really high quality and are very inexpensive. I just picked up a nice used Gen II ILBE for $50 and have not had a chance to really test it out. I stumbled upon your youtube channel a few years ago when I was looking at Ideas for modifying ALICE packs and have been a big fan ever since. Is there any way you could do a video on the ILBE ruck sacks, I would love to hear your take on them.

  6. I just received the micro spools from Mark. It is the perfect finishing touch to my altoid tin field repair kit. I've been piecing it together for months and this kevlar twine finally let me put a ranger band on it and call it good.
