When the military needs small cord to help secure their gear, they use this 3/32" Tether Cord. This U.S. made tether cord is also called "Sensitive Item Securing System". It's used throughout the military to secure things like strobe lights, compasses and knives to the operator.

I compared this to cord I had that was made in 1980. The quality is the same. It is easy to work with and a good price
this is one of my favorite items to put in stockings at xmas or a secret santa gift. Any guy can use it and for many different things.
Well I bought this 3 or 4 years ago, kept it in the truck and forgot about it until today. Long story short - this worked perfectly for tying down a new box spring and mattress in the back of the truck...no worries about the wind or turns. You never know when you'll need it but it's fairly compact and strong enough for many applications.
I started using this for gear modification and retention in those places that para-cord is too thick or too heavy. It works great for zipper pulls, small tool lanyards, etc. It is much lighter, more pliable and flexible than para-cord. This is a must have for your gear repair tool kit.
