Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by janmt Would be 5 stars with small improvements
I bought this for a cub scout project. There are three BIG shortcomings. (1) Contents are not accurately depicted. (2) one long piece of paracord should have been included, not two and, as others have mentioned, (3) the directions are AWFUL.
CONTENTS: The contents are not listed accurately. The description says, "Includes three 41" nylon paracords". The picture shows two cords two cords are actually included. The lengths are 30" and 62".
As for quality, one of the clasps did not hold, but an extra was included. The compasses don't work well, but I did not expect much.
PARACORD LENGTHS: Every set of directions on making these I've found uses ONE length of cord. Not only are two lengths unnecessary, it makes finishing very messy. No reason to have four cut ends instead of two. There is NO benefit for two lengths.
DIRECTIONS: They are awful. They show you how to tie the knots in the middle. Not how to start OR finish. Really awful.
I've been so pleased with other purchases. This was a real let down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Evie2 Loved the producted. However.
Loved my finished product. But I had to go to the internet to find instructions on how to make them into the finished project. The instructions where less than satisfactory on how to finish the project and make it look anything like the picture. It did show how to tie a a good square not, but thats about all.
