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 Its 550 cord.... its sweet! - 12/2/2013
Reviewer: ColtReaper
Its just like the 550 cord I used in the Army. If you know what 550 cord is, then you know what your looking at and you know what to expect. This cord is really strong, and has so many uses. I use it all the time. Just tied some up between some trees and then hung branches from the cord and made a quick hide in the woods. You will not get a better deal for multipurpose rope anywhere that will be as strong as this 550 cord.

5.0 Rating best buy - 10/21/2012
Reviewer: snake eyes
I purchased this spool mainly to use for holding my coil tarps in place. The chord is wonderful. Cuts and fuses extremely easily with a soldering iron with a chisel tip. I definitely will be getting another spool soon.
