    I've got a formula that works with anything to do with "how much".
    That would be enough but not too much.

    Paracord weighs very little, and is real handy stuff. I use it to hang my food up, but have some heavier line for hanging meat. If ypu need a number, I would not take less than 100'. I never measured, but bet I bring more than that. Then you'll have plenty for spare boot laces, tent lines, dental floss (for you southern boys), etc.

    I have never measured it. lol. I would guess I take around 50', maybe more, IDK, I have a few pieces of 550 cord rolled up that are prob 10'-20' long that I always take. I never have used all of it but it sure comes in handy at times!

    I take 100' on any hunts that take me far enough that I have to spend the night on the mountain. I do not use any of it for shelters, if I did use it for shelters I would take more.
