What is Paracord?

Paracord (also known as Parachute Cord) is a lightweight, nylon kernmantle (inner core protected by a woven outer sheath) rope originally used in the military for parachute suspension lines and utility rope. Veteran’s found thousands of other uses for paracord as time went on, including fishing line, survival gear, shoe laces, belts and so much more. 550 Para cord is one of the toughest, most dependable cords available. Beyond its famous 550-pound tensile strength and proven durability, the added qualities of being mold, mildew, rot and UV fade resistant make it a much-desired rope for home repair, emergency preparedness, and wilderness camping. 

The smooth texture of the rope comes from the 32-strand interwoven nylon sheath. Encased in the sheath are 7 nylon inner strands, both of which contribute to the cords 550-pound tensile strength. Another bonus of paracord is these versatile inner strands that can be removed any time a narrower cordage is needed, such as fishing line, sutures, and snares.

In addition to all its utility uses, paracord is also widely used for crafting. Make bracelets, handle wraps, belts, lanyards, whips and hundreds of decorative projects from this simple sturdy rope.

    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.
