    Was browsing a few of the sites I visit every so often & found that ITS Tactical had brought out a new product.

    550 Paracord, which while in itself is not worthy of your interest, how they have packaged it is.

    They have vacuum sealed it in what looks to be a heavy duty zip lock bag.

    When I saw it my first thoughts were why has no one done that before?

    I suppose mostly we buy it to use it, not store it.... mind you, it would taste nice and fresh when opened it ;D

    True, but for certain uses like a bug out bag, an emergency kit, or for people who have need of carrying a length of cord but don't use it a lot, it would be of benefit.

    Plus when you are done with your project you can store the remaining cord in the bag.

    You can always just stick it in a heavy-duty Ziploc freezer bag yourself. :shrug:

    Yeah, Stormdrain helped with that I believe (correct me if I'm mistaken). There is a DIY version on his instructable page and blog.

    Well it would definitely be easier to get this out compared to untying a paracord bracelet/lanyard/etc.
