Knots to learn

Following are (some of) the knots to learn before heading off to jungle trip or camping. Small demo videos from our knots expert Dryden.

Bowline Knot – One of the simplest knots, but very effective in securing you or anyone else in trouble. Learn this knot as it could save your life!

Fisherman’s Knot – Again a simple knot and effective knot to join the ropes. You could increase the strength of the join by making it double or triple fisherman’s knot.

Half-hitch Knot – You would always make 2 half-hitches, most of the time to support another knot or as a non-critical knot to tie a rope against a tree or pole.

Sheet Bend Knot – Another way to join ropes.
