InTheMail (Survival Gear) | Voltlog #309

Welcome to a new InTheMail, my usual introductory line would say this is the series that will touch both your passion for electronics and your bank account at the same time but in this episode it’s not about electronics, it’s mostly some outdoor / camping / surviving gear that I got for my adventures and I think some of you may find this interesting, especially as our social behavior is changing now and during this summer we might spend more time in the nature.

I’m gonna start with this paracord rope, it’s 4mm wide, 30 meters long or 100ft with 7 inner strands. It’s rated for 550 pounds or 250Kg minimum breaking strength so this would work for anything when you go outdoors, tying stuff around your camp, tying stuff for transport, but obviously not recommended for anything where your life might depend on it. I try to keep this stuff in my backpack whenever I go camping because it’s pretty light and compact and you never know when you need to improvise and tie something down. The particular seller where I got this offers it in 250 different colors and styles so there is plenty to choose from.
