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.

The smooth texture of the rope comes from the 32-strand interwoven nylon sheath (kernmantle).

    When you cut the Cord with a Scissors, be sure to heat the ends, so they don't separate.
