The kids loved making the bracelets.

Just needed some light weight rope to lash things with and couple hold up to the elements and this rope seems to fit the need very well.

I previously left a review that revealed how disappointed I was in the product. Not with the actual quality of the cord, which, for the price, I thought was pretty good but with the short measure. I purchased the 100ft length and was supplied with one about 93ft. As I said in the review, I paid for 100ft, I expected 100ft (even though the price was way below what you would normally pay). To their absolute credit, Outdoor Bunker profusely apologized and supplied me with another 25ft length of cordage in recompense free of charge. It is quite easy to see that mistakes do get made in the factory and Outdoor Bunker are only the suppliers, but it is evident that they do value their customers and they will not let them down as far as customer service is concerned. They were extremely prompt and courteous in dealing with my complaint and as a consequence of this, I received the extra cordage within a week! I rescind my earlier negative review unreservedly and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending that you buy from this supplier. Their customer service is second to none.

Just wanted to correct something I saw floating around on the reviews.

It is true that if paracord is going to be sold to the military (aka MIL-C-5040) it has to have an identifying colored thread, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is of any higher quality, but just that it is labeled for military sale and likely has a more stringent quality control threshold.

The requirements for MIL-C-5040 (or at least the ones important to this discussion) are that it uses a total of seven, 630 denier (denier is essentially a measure of the mass of yarn per meter), 3 ply strands for it's core, and that it contain the identifying colored strand. (it's also limited to a few basic colors: black, brown etc. One of the easiest ways to tell that this isn't MIL-C-5040 is that it comes in hot pink).

Commercial cord is not REQUIRED to meet these measures, but often times does. In the case of this specific paracord, the internal strands are two ply not three, and thus not up to MIL-C-5040 standards. That is not to say that this is not extremely tough cord. I personally had this cord under a 400lbs static stress load recently and didn't see any damage or deformity from it, but I wouldn't actually rely on it for a life-saving application.

"Commercial Cord" is not a dirty word. There are manufacturers of commercial cord who are going to have higher standards than the requirements for MIL-C-5040 cord. Military manufacturers are trying to keep things cheap, and thus shoot for the minimum (stringent though they may be) requirements laid out by the government. Often times, outdoor enthusiasts are willing to up the price considerably to get something even tougher.

This only took 2 days to recieve and the cord itself is as good or better than any other paracord I've purchased in the past. Great business, and I highly recommend this seller.. I know I'll be back for more purchases!!!

I feel this paracord is not all that great. The internal core threads are kind of small. I have real paracord that I aquired while I was a parachute rigger in the US Navy. This Paracord Planet stuff is pretty wimpy. It works OK for bracelets and the like, but I would not use it for any survival situation. I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some paracord from them, it is a better quality and almost as good as the military grade, the inner cores are about the same size as military spec cord. Only problem with Hobby Lobby, they don't carry a ton of different colors. So save yourself disappointment, and find a different supplier. Would not recommend.

This is the first paracord I have purchased other than cheap imitation chain store variety. After reading several other rewiews It seems that this is top quality paracord. We will be using it for Scouting purposes. I will buy from this supplier again.

They could have used a little better lighting in the picture in my opinion. I was completely surprised at what came when I opened the package. This is a completely different shade of blue than what I though I ordered. Still a good product.

I only buy paracord made in the USA and I'll definitely buy this product again. It is a nice black color and you can tell the quality of the weave just by feeling it.
