    Fire Tripper, Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry I had to Like your double post, but that's the kind of guy I am, though I hate doing it to the new folks.:)

    BTW, the most likely cause of that DP is hitting the post reply button again after getting the error message. If you refresh the page instead more often than not you will find that the post went through the first time.

    If you wrote a really long post. copy it just in case refreshing the page trick doesn't work and you end up at square one.

    If you're worried about how it looks, just make a longer "bracelet" and put it around your ankle for a slightly loose fit. People won't see it (assuming you wear jeans or other long pants), frees up your wrists for awesome watches, and you get more paracord out of the deal to boot. If you're extra fancy, make another out of amsteel or kevlar cordage and put it on your other leg :p

    I personally use something I learned called "foxing".

    you make a figure of eight coil on two fingers and secure it in the middle with a constrictor knot. it is quite compact, and you can take just the amount you need off the coil. you then just snug up the constrictor and the coil is secure again.

    At the bottom of my BOB is 50 feet vacuum-packed in a plastic bag so as to avoid the inevitable tangles.

    No but I haven't been doing it for long. It doesn't seem like it would happen though.

    The only problem I've had is getting my toe stuck on the loop one morning. Oh and I did freak out for a second when I thought I had a bug crawl in my pants when it shifted as I layed back in the hammock.

    A lot of good ideas on here that I'm going to have to try!

    Here's another potential method.

    I can't wear watches (skin doesn't like prolonged exposure to metal anymore. even the fancy titanium watch I bought that was supposed to be okay for that...) and I don't like wearing bracelets, so I made this. Keep it in my pocket most of the time, unless I'm sleeping somewhere without a clock (camping), then I clip it on my backpack. Not a quick-deploy method, but I don't think I'd ever really need it for that. Made it mostly just for the function of having a watch that's easy to grab out of my pocket. Also discovered it's a good way to prevent leaving the house without my wedding ring. (I clip it on this at night, that way if I'm leaving at o'dark-thirty, I won't miss it.)

    I also keep at least one 25' hank of 550 in all my backpacks (EDC, Adventure, GHB) that are much easier to deploy. One of those packs is never very far from me.

    I carry 10' in an organizer but its in a bag usually. On person I can see a smaller coil going in a pocket or a few feet as a necklace.

    Do you wear a hat much? I find a paracord handband is a good way of keeping cord on the go.

    I like the down the leg method because it stays tangle/twisted free 99% of the time.

    !!!!! SUPER-MEGA IMPORTANT UPDATE / PSA !!!!!

    In case you're an idiot, like me, please do not entrust a clip of this sort (see photo above) to securely hold a wedding ring for "safe keeping" while active. I just returned from a mission trip. My wedding ring did not. Fortunately, news of my idiocy was unsurprising to my Wife, and I am still alive. Now considering replacing it with a tattoo that I cannot lose. (At least not without loss of limb...)

    Sorry about the lost ring, dude. At least you never have to polish a tat!
