comment How to lock a trucker's hitch without losing any tension?
It's not a duplicate. That question is about the mid-like knot, I am talking about the locking one.

Please see a comment to Paul answer (so to avoid duplication). :) Thanks!

comment Are there any sunglasses with prescription insert that does not alter depth sense?
I recently made some spare glasses for casual wearing - nothing sporty. I mentioned the issue to the technician though. He told me that there are now costy lenses that solve that issue and do not deflect the image. Unfortunately I did not delve into more details.

comment How steep of a slope can you skin up in AT gear?
It really depends on your skins and snow type. Some snow grips better than other.

comment Is there a more practical type of cord to carry than “550 paracord”?
I use plenty of this. The site is unfortunately not informative about the material or whatsoever. The package reads that it can hold 80kg which is more than enough for most uses. It doesnt's stretch at all and it is very think (2mm) and lightweight. There are thicker versions with higher strenght (and of course weight) if required. decathlon.it/cordino-2mmx10m-id_8174618.html

comment How to camp in wolf country?
He said that he doesn't use tents though. Btw, I am coming to Bulgaria in May to hike, to rock climb, and for the goat milk festival in Gorna Bela Rechka, will you be there? :)

I also considered that it could be a decorative knot, but I wanted to share so to be sure (or to discover something new).

comment using anti-perspirant in extreme cold climate
Perhaps you are talking about vapor barrier layers. Their purpose is to keep your equipment dry from your sweat in several-days winter trips - not a very common scenario, that's why they are rare. Here's a great article about those. andrewskurka.com/2011/vapor-barrier-liners-theory-application

Lol, ok :). Have you successfully killed a prey with it?

Sling for hunting, no. The one on your pictures looks like it's made out of much more than the cord that is in a bracelet IMHO. Assuming that the rock is about a tennis ball size.

I'm also interested in real world, non-survival uses, if there are others than the two mentioned.
