10 Ways to EDC Paracord

A bundle of paracord is one of the most versatile and useful things you can have in your EDC. That's because its strength and durability allows you to do more with it than might think. You can tie things together, use it to repair straps and cords, and even turn it into an emergency tourniquet. The possibilities are almost endless, and versatility is all well and good, but you still might find it a bit strange to carry around a bundle of rope. Usually you'll see EDCers tie a short lanyard to their knife or flashlight, but the good news is that there are plenty of other ways to discreetly carry paracord. In this guide, we'll show you some unconventional ways to integrate this useful cordage into your everyday carry.

ARKTYPE Paracord Magnet Keychain

Keychains aren't exactly the most glamorous EDC staples, so how do you make one that's exciting? It's simple. Take cutting-edge hardware and the strongest materials, then roll them up into a clever, utility-driven design. That's what San Francisco-based ARKTYPE's doing with its PMK, or Paracord Magnet Keychain.

The PMK starts with a heavy-duty, stainless steel snap shackle for anchoring the keychain to your belt loop or bag. Next, a  paracord lanyard (hand-weaved in the USA) adds just the right amount of length for a backpocket tuck and doubles as emergency cordage in a survival situation. Last but not least, you have quick and convenient access to your keys thanks to a magnetic Fidlock clasp attached to a split ring.

This combination excels at key qualities you'd want in your keychain: security (from the shackle), utility (from the paracord), and accessibility (from the magnetic quick-disconnect). The PMK comes in three low-key colorways (black, grey, OD green paracord) with a smaller pull cable for extra customization. See the PMK in action and pledge for yours over at ARKTYPE's Kickstarter campaign below.
