Braided nylon parachute cord, with seven strands of nylon liner, can be used for fishing, snares, or sewing.

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 Handy Stuff - 8/23/2011
Reviewer: Going with the OD
The cord is as exactly as described. Excellent Stuff and so very handy especially for flashlight, knife, and other landyard needs. You can pull the inside strands out for the selected piece as needed to loosen up and deflate a bit. Works great this way for the smaller needed applications/lanyards. Leaving the strands in makes for the perfect beefier lanyards/boot laces etc that you may need. Buying at the larger roll of 300 feet is more economical and means you will have extra that should last quite a while. I applying some to Emergency kits in boat, car and hunting gear. Beware: you gonna feel like spidy man ;)

Reviewer: hbdad
This stuff is great! Received it quick, as usual. After wrapping our large knives and machetes with it, I re-strung my work boots with it. Its internal strands are super strong, but small enough to fish with. Im wrapping the handle of everything with it.
