What is Paracord?

Paracord, commonly referred to as Parachute Cord, is a thin rope made of nylon with an inner core shielded by a woven outer sheath. It was first utilized by the military for a variety of uses requiring cordage, including suspension lines in parachutes. Over time, veterans discovered countless new applications for paracord, such as belts, fishing line, survival gear, shoe laces, and much more. One of the strongest and most reliable cords on the market is 550 Paracord.

The rope's 32-strand interwoven nylon sheath, or kernmantle, gives it a smooth texture. Seven nylon inner strands are enclosed in a robust and smooth sheath, both of which add to the cord's 550-pound tensile strength. The adaptable inner strands of paracord are an added benefit; they may be taken out if you require a more manageable yet sturdy string for a range of circumstances.

Expanding the usage of paracord even further, easily learn weaves, wraps and knots tailor made for easy unravelling in survival situations. In addition to all the utility functions paracord serves, another widespread use for paracord is crafting. Make bracelets, handle wraps, belts, lanyards, whips and hundreds of decorative items.

    Great for DIY Acopian Bird Savers

    Posted by Susan Shopland on Aug 15th 2022

    Ordered this to make Bird Savers for my windows. The olive drab color blends well with the landscape and doesn't obscure my view. Product was as advertised and shipped promptly. Very satisfied.
