    I generally like to carry plastic bags, but nice sizable thick ones, the fold very small and are decent at holding water... used them many times.. and 2nd use is I can make a solar still with them.

    I have several of these for camping and such. Water is so much easier to deal with if you have ways to carry and store it in volume. I also always have a lot of heavy garbage bags on hand. I have a bunch of 5 gallon sized treatment pills. You can dig a hole put a bag in the hole then fill it up drop in a pill and have a 5 gallon water storage dump. Treating water in small volume is slow and time consuming. In hot weather you need water by the gallon not by the pint!

    Micro paracord and nano paracord

    https://atwoodrope.com/collections/micro-cord

    https://atwoodrope.com/collections/nano-cord

    Sew whatever using the nano-cord and that stitch will still be in place when the item is long gone.

    The tiny micro-cord is 100 lb. test. Trust me on this, it will hold a lot more weight than that.

    Be careful, this stuff is small and will therefore cut you like nobody's business. If you hit a line of this at velocity, it will cut through your skin and muscle down to the bone. Indeed, it can be used for booby-traps. Piano wire will outdo it, of course. Kevlar will also. However, for the price, this stuff has a thousand uses. I've jerry-rigged all manner of things using it.

    Here's their Kevlar products

    At a certain point, how much strength do you need?! And also, what if you need to cut a line in a hurry -- do you want something infinitely strong? Me, I don't.
