I don't like leaving a 5 star review, as no item is perfect. That said, I gave this item 5 stars as it is exactly what it was advertised to be. When I opened the paracord (which was shipped quickly by the way) I could see the 7 strands inside. The paracord holds my weight, 240 lbs, with not problem - which is what I was looking for. You shouldn't use this to clime mountains, there is better rope for that. But, it makes for great looking and long lasting shoelaces, camping line etc. I bought it for my knife, but I have found myself using it for everything. I highly recommend keeping some in your emergency kit, your car and anywhere else you may find yourself needing it at some future point. This stuff doesn't rot, so it will be there when you need it. It may not be military grade (I can't say if it is or isn't myself), but I'm not going to be storming Iraq any time soon, so if it's not, that's okay by me.

Bought 300' so far.....indispensable. Keep some in wife's car, truck, work truck, make lanyards outta it....tie down ANYTHING....use as boot laces(laces that will never break)...hang antennas from trees...or to tease the cats with......love this stuff....and it's the real deal...not some Chinese ripoff stuff.

Got this for my emergency backpack. It is black and actually lightweight. The cord has seven white strands inside you can see it when you cut it. I was a bit frustrated because when I cut it it would fray and was hard to put back thru other items. I solved that problem by just lighting the end with a lighter to stop the fraying and it works fine. It wraps up nicely and will be in my backpack and attached to a lot of gear for easy access such as zippers and so on.

I recommend the product.

This is a nice tight braid, not as soft as the harware store "clothesline" grade stuff. I want to point out that the package I received does have one hundred feet, not inches. The picture of the product label is correct, the link text (550lb. Type III Paracord 100" Black) is not.

Ah... Paracord. Its a lovely nylon mix apart from being amazingly strong and thinner than a pencil. It can be stretched out to secure items and is very unlikely to snap or brake. In the boot camp I had a teammate that didn't have great memory so we attached his items to his pant's with Paracord. Took us long enough to cut it off him when he learned his lesson. It can be used for emergency climbing but, I don't suggest it since the small rope can flatten out and burn your hands badly. Then again if it's an emergency I don't think rope burn is your biggest worry. Over all paracord is wonderful.

I bought this paracord because I didn't have any paracord and I need some paracord. When it showed up I was very pleased because I had some paracord whereas before the order arrived I didn't have any paracord, which is the reason I ordered some paracord. So far I have made three paracord bracelets and five paracord knife lanyards out of paracord. I recommend that anyone who needs some paracord and doesn't have any paracord order this paracord.

The cord I received was not cut well at all. Right off the bat I had to easily sacrifice 2 feet in order to properly prevent it from fraying. Also, I found a few cuts in the sheath of the rope around it. As I bought it for knot tying practice, it is ok. But I was going to actually use it for working loads, I would return it immediately. Also, it is some of the most expensive stuff I could find, so I thought I was getting the best.

This stuff is badly made. The sheath is very loose and "baggy" around the core, when I noticed this I decided to test it in my backyard. I rigged up a little "swing" making sure that the knots would not affect the strength of the rope, when I sat down in the loop it immediately broke. This is Type III 550 paracord which means it should be able to hold 550 lbs, I only weigh 160. Surprised me too, don't buy this if you ever plan to, or might end up having to use this in any situation where strength counts. I hate to think of what would happen if I had taken this out in the wilderness and tried to use it in an emergency...
