It is surprisingly hard to find true mil spec para-cord. This is mil spec! You find a lot of knock offs claiming to be mil spec but only hold about 250#. Do not be fooled. This is the stuff to buy.

I'd been looking around forever for the true Mil-Spec (MIL-C-5040H & PIA-C-5040) paracord and saw the reviews on this product so figured I'd give it a go. As the other reviewers have posted, this is the real stuff: 8 tri-braided strands with a colored strand.

Purchase with confidence!

This parachute chord is high grade, just as 5Col described it. This is not the knock-off commercial grade found elsewhere. The outer sheath is of a very tight weave. I've read of folks doing a "bury" splice in para-cord, but I don't think that is possible with this cord. That's actually very good news if you are looking for cord to use as a high strength military grade line.

This is the real 550 paracord our troops use. Not that commercial grade stuff that you see a lot of. Very strong line.
One feature I like but is not that important is that the outer liner is full with the inner threads and doesnt move around making knots very clean and effective.
