Do you have several ropes hanging around, literally, that are stored in no particular fashion? If so, this is for you. If you are hoping to learn how to coil your ropes in a way that is neat and tidy as well as easy to unwind when you need it, you will want to pull up a chair and pay attention.
Here is a video demonstrating some of the ways you can coil a rope for hanging in your garage, laying in the trunk of your car or even for hanging off your pack. A nice coil is great for keeping a rope free of knots and tangles and quite frankly, it just looks a lot better. The last thing you want to be dealing with in an emergency survival situation is a tangled up gob of rope. Take the time to learn how to store them neatly today and avoid future frustration.
