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 Simply AWESOME Cord - 2/27/2007
Reviewer: Rick
I ordered 300 feet of this a year or so back and use it for EVERYTHING! I keep a roll in my truck, in the toolbox, in the garage, in the shed. I've gone through 300 feet in just a few years. I'm getting ready to place an order for 1000 feet! Oh... The other great thing about this cord is that you can wrap the handle of your survival knife with it. This does several things... 1. Increases the diameter of the grip so that your hands don't tire as fast. 2. You can actually wrap (tightly!) about 25 feet of cord around the handle so you have it available any time you use the knife. You ALWAYS need a length of line when you don't have it! 3. The cord acts as a vibration dampener so that any type of chopping action doesn't wear out your hand and arm. Hell... I'd make clothes out of this stuff if I could! Buy a few rolls and keep it handy... You'll be glad you did!

5.0 Rating Great stuff! - 6/8/2007
Reviewer: Ed in HB
I bought a 300' spool of this stuff about 2 years ago. I use it all the time. As a Scout Master, I use it camping for tying tents down, for webbing on my packs, to just about anything you can think of. If you're an outdoor type of person, this is for you.
