This lanyard doesn't just keep your GPS handy it also serves as an emergency supply of paracord. Each lanyard is comprised of approximately 10m of 550lb paracord.
Paracord is a safety supply that all geocachers, hunters, fisherman, hikers and other outdoors people, should carry on their person in the event of emergencies. The idea behind lanyards as survival gear is that you can conveniently wear and use if necessary.
The paracord is military quality consisting of 7 inner strands and a nylon outer sheath. Whole the paracord has a tensile strength of 550 lbs.
The inner strands can be removed individually and are great for sewing, fishing and a multitude of other uses. Just cut off what you need. Same with the sheath; many uses.
Paracord does not rot or mildew - a great plus especially on those rainy caching days.
Hand crafted in Canada.
