Braided nylon parachute cord, with seven strands of nylon liner, can be used for fishing, snares, or sewing. The soft braided outer shell is durable yet cushioned, allowing this cord to be flexible so it is the perfect wrap for knife handles, spears, and survival gear. Mil-spec standard USA production and super quality.

Specifications:
Type III.
550 lb (249kg) minimum breaking strength.
30 % minimum elongation.
225 feet (69m) per lb, minimum.
7 core yarns.
32 strand sheath structure.

Parachute cord, also called paracord or 550 cord, is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic.

US Military issue paracord is specified the MIL-C-5040H standard. The Mil-Spec specifies six types: I, IA, II, IIA, III, IV. Type III, the most common, is nominally rated with a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds, thus the term "550 cord". The US military specification for paracord contains specific denier figures for the sheath strands and inner yarns, but there are no overall diameter requirements for the cord.

5.0 Rating The REAL STUFF - 4/16/2010
Reviewer: R Cray
THIS IS REAL PARA-CORD! My friend paid more for "parachute cord" from another company and got some cheap crap with some kind of polyester fuzz lining. This is actual parachute "550" cord. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 Rating Perfect! - 5/14/2009
Reviewer: whitefeather010
It's just exactly what it's supposed to be. I spent 7 years in the Army and this is the same stuff I used then, except the Army uses OD. I've used this stuff for everything from truck tie downs to tying off a hammock in a tree. It does stretch some when a significant load is placed on it, but it's supposed to do that. I highly reccomend this stuff for everyone.

5.0 Rating Catfish delight - 3/30/2010
Reviewer: MOO
I stripped its shell and pulled the individual strings out, attached it to a a hook and put some meat on. A few hours later we had a medium sized cat fish snagged. I used it as shoe laces on my deployment and strung it around my boonie hat for extra cord. You can never have enough so long as you store it on yourself properly. Extremely useful!

5.0 Rating Excellent - 3/31/2011
Reviewer: Me
This is the real deal at a great price. I tacked this onto my order as an impulse buy just to see how much the shipping would increase. It only made it about a dollar more to ship this with my other four items, so I pulled the trigger. Glad I did. I don't use 550 cord a lot, so I'm saving this entire roll for now.
