Mini Compass Paracord Doohickies...

These are mini compass lanyards that I made with 5 feet of paracord in the Solomon bar/cobra stitch/Portuguese sinnet pattern, tied in various colors with a swivel clip.

They can be used as a paracord keychain fob or clipped to a backpack as a backup compass for camping, hiking, backpacking, or just to every day carry as you make your way around town.

The inexpensive compasses work fine, but if you prefer a higher grade compass, the Suunto Clipper compasses can be used instead.

The paracord could be untied and come in handy for something like repairing a broken shoestring or bootlace, or a temporary fix for a broken backpack strap or whatnot...
