Product Description

The550CordShop only sells MADE IN THE USA Parachute cord

What is 550 cord? Parachute cord is the lightweight nylon cord used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Soldiers found this cord very useful for many things. Now it is used as a general purpose utility cord by both the military and civilians. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands giving it a smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes parachute cord weather and fade resistant. While the military has no overall diameter requirements most cord typically measures about 4mm in diameter.

Would I ever need 550 cord? We certainly hope you don't but life can be unpredictable.

"Good Luck happens when preparedness meets opportunity."-Unknown

"I will prepare and someday my chance will come." -- Abraham Lincoln

"No rope! And only last night you said to yourself: "Sam, what about a bit of rope? You'll want it if you haven't got it". Well, I want it and I can't get it now."-- Samwise Gamgee from "The Lord of the Rings"

Why would I want to carry parachute cord?

In an emergency you could use the parachute cord for many life saving applications. You could build a shelter or raft. Fashion a bow string or bola or another primitive weapon. You could shred the fibers with a knife and use it as tinder. Make a fire bow/drill. Improvise a gun sling, pants belt or Shoelaces. Make a tourniquet. The inner strand can be stripped out and used as a fishing line! Rope is just a practical thing to have during an emergency, and it hardly gets more versatile than Military Spec MIL-C-5040 Type III 550 Parachute Cord!

How can I easily carry parachute cord? There are many ways to keep parachute cord handy. The most popular is in the form of a survival bracelet or belt. There are a wide variety of colors, so you can make your bracelet or belt to match your clothes, your team, YOUR STYLE

If you were like me, you spent a very long time going through tons of paracords on Amazon, but were continually turned away by the scary reviews. This is excellent paracord. It is exactly as described by the seller. Also, if like me you are nervous about buying products on Amazon that aren't sold by Amazon, don't worry. Seller is reliable, and shipping took one fifth the time it was expected to. Great buy.

This stuff is fine for crafts or tying stuff to your backpack, but this is not military spec, which should have interior strands each made of three smaller strands. Military spec is generally stronger, and you can remove the interior strands to use for thread or other purposes when in the wild. The interior strands on this stuff just unravels. Most of the stuff on the market are knock-offs, not military spec, but they should not say it is military spec if it is not.

I'm not really sure haw you can screw up 100 ft of paracord, but they didn't so I give it a 5 star rating.

Better than any stuff I have found at any surplus stores, i would recommend this rather than going around trying to find something that may or may not be real.

Great service,great product. I will be ordering more of this. The 550 Cord Shop is a great seller. I highly recommend them and their product! This isn't military cord but it is up to specs. Thirty two woven strand casing and a seven strand inner core. Like I said great stuff.
