I tried my hand at weaving a para cord handle in my EDC. Bag

I have a Maxpedition fat boy versa pack and the handle lacked substance so I did a King Cobra weave over the top of it using the existing handle as a spine. This was my 1st weave, I thought it came out pretty cold.

Looks good. For handle wrapping applications, I think you'll be able to get away with not using 550# test cord.

It's 550 cord in black and it did exactly what I wanted it to do. I'm content.

550 cord is relatively cheap and readily available... that looks good.

It's a far cry from what it was, it's much more comfortable to carry by the handle now

I have never been accused of being normal. I do dig this satchel though, finally a pocketbook for a man.

Looks cool. I need that on my camera bag. I've tried unsuccessfully to do the paracord wraps and stuff. This is what I end up with.

Cool. May have to try doing a wrap job on something. Maybe a grip on my scout hiking staff.
