This is the exact type of cord that is sold to the US Military for non-critical missions, where reliability is a must. The paracord advertised here is not a cheap imitation, it is the real thing! Because individual strands of 550 paracord can be easily removed and combined into your own configurations, this small rope can be put to a wide variety of survival uses.

There is debate about it being mil-spec but I don't think it will get in the way of whichever special ops you are planning. If you are in doubt of its strength in a particular use, double it up. I'd definitely use it if I was jumping out of a helo over the urban jungles of SW San Jose on a black ops mission to Facebook HQ and I had no other rope around.
Among the many other uses, I've used it to tie up stakes, make a small ball to keep in my car for emergencies, make this review, and tie my TV down to keep it from falling off its stand.
I was buying several different small lengths trying to gauge different manufactures / distributors quality before buying 1000 ft lengths. If every spool and color that this manufacturer sells is as good as this, then i will most likely not buy from anyone else. The spool i got is great quality and a good price. This was distributed by "The US Military Manufacturer". The spool i got has no name brand on it but just has a number of X0000ZEB13. I would really like to know who actually manufactures this cord because it would be nice to know if they make different patterns or colors. The only colors offered by the seller i bought this from is OD and Black.
1000 feet seems like a lot, but you *will* use it, and not a small amount will wander off, never to return, when friends and neighbors see how useful it is. But for the price per foot in the pennies, it's at least as useful as duct tape and more used than any other rope I've got around the house, and more water/ weather tolerant, too. You *need* this! You just don't know it yet! And if not knowing knotting holds you back, try out these Nite-Ize Figure 9 tie-downs here at Amazon and keep a few in your glove box or bench rest of your car or truck for those unplanned acquisitions that you need to secure for a ride home.

See the difference?)
, it's a commercial variant. But there are many commercial variants, and this is the good kind. When you're just using it as cord, you'll never know the difference. Only time you might is when you're taking it apart for smaller components. Maybe when you're melting it, though I found melting to be easy enough.
Undeniably a better deal for the money. Don't go with anything cheaper, however, because almost certainly you'll cross the threshold into noticeably cheaper quality.
