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 suspension lines in parachutes as well as many other purposes where cordage was needed. 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 550-pound tensile strength and proven durability, the added qualities of being mold, mildew, rot and UV fade resistant makes it a top of the line rope.

The smooth texture of the rope comes from the 32-strand interwoven nylon sheath (kernmantle). Encased in the strong and smooth sheath are 7 nylon inner strands, both of which contribute to the cords 550-pound tensile strength. Another bonus of paracord are the versatile inner strands – which can be removed anytime a smaller yet tough string is needed in any variety of situations such as fishing line, sutures, snares and accents just to name a few.

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.

    This was my second order to Paracord Planet, and I am very pleased with it. There was a slight glitch with one of the paracord packages, and customer service took care of it immediately, far exceeding any expectations I had! I will definitely be ordering more in the future from Paracord Planet and highly recommend them.
