    Love it, Decklin! Absolutely perfect, just what I've been looking for! I suck at macrame and hate the accordion effect after undoing a knot. This looks easy enough (I'll put it to the test in the morning over a pot of coffee), and looks to, as you say, minimize the accordion affect. Thanks for posting!

    I would be interested in a sling for my AK-74 and possibly the PSL.

    I'm on the schedule at work next week for about 70 hours, but I'll see if I can get some sling hardware and some more paracord and see what I can put together when things get settled down. Thanks for the replies.

    Amazing work man.

    Decklin- with that same pattern, only about 4-5 inches you can make a very strong sling(think david and goliath)

    for a stiffer strap you can do the solomon bar, and then go back over it same stitch to make it thicker and thicker.

    To untie a solomon/cobra thing that size would take a good amount of nerves and time though. Decklin's comes apart almost by itself. Both have advantages and disadvantages.

    I'm finally done - or not. I didn't add the intended hardware BEFORE I weaved the strap together because I thought they were carabiners. Well, they damn weren't. So I've attached the thing to one of my packs. I guess it's never wrong to carry a good length of backup cord.

    Now I'll have to wait for the next boring football match to start a new one while watching.

    Meanwhile I did a belt and a shoulder strap using the cobra or solomon technique (several instruction vids are available on YouTube). It's fast and easy to tie but indefinitely harder to untie. It looks indefinitely nicer too though.

    I've worn bracelets sometimes, but I guess when you run out of cord, that little length around your wrist doesn't make so much difference. The belt holds a good 20 meters of 550 Paracord and is very comfortable. I guess you could use near 19 meters of it, since you will still need a strand to hold your pants in place. ;-)

    So I want to make this fit my DSLR in a 1-point sling style. Any ideas on how I could do this? It would probably be around 40". I just need to figure out how to connect both ends in a secure manner. It would be cool if it could also quick-detach from my camera.

    nice work I used an easy (and quick) daisy chain on my 10x4, carried pretty comfortably (but probably not as comfortably as the woven one)



    if anyone has a guess to this weave, I'm all ears
