Please explain why you think paracord is “crap”? You make that rather blanket generalization, but then just tell us how much “proper kernmantle “ you carry, but don’t explain why you don’t like paracord.

Ironically, paracord is in fact kernmantle. It has a “kern” (core), covered with a “mantle” (sheath). Note that astronauts used paracord to repair the Hubble space telescope.
