    I don't carry paracord. I always have a few meters of 3mm nautical dyneema line in my bag. It's lighter, easier to transport, holds more than three times the load and is much more resistant to friction. You could tow a car with that line. It's costly, but also lasts a very long time.
    You can splice loops with a SAK with surprising ease and speed.
    This is acutally one of the items in my bag that earned its place. I've found myself in need of a piece of string/rope often enough that I started bringing one. I've used it in a number of ways, among them (from the top of my head):
    -Cloths line
    -hanging a Hammock
    -tying something down on a motorcycle
    -repairing something in a fix
    -dog leash
    -replacing a broken belt on the roof rack

    i've used it a few times over the years, mostly with my gravity hook xs. I keep about 15ft of it in a small bundle connected to my gravity hook, which was super handy when my daughter got hit in the face with a ball and her glasses went flying off and directly into a storm drain. I've used paracord to tie open a door a few times. It also works well to throw through a drop-ceiling to pull ethernet cables in a pinch.
