There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
While I expected the buckles to be essentially useless based on all the reviews, I did expect to at least receive the cord that I ordered. Unfortunately, like a few other reviewers, while my packaging was labeled with what I ordered (Simmering), I did not receive the colors shown. Orange was replaced by a mustard-y yellow.
I've yet to cut open and count internal strands/yarns, but for the record this cord *barely* measures 4mm thick. I'll be pleasantly surprised if there are actually 7 yarns inside. If the inner core is at least up to spec I'll adjust my review to 3stars, but only because there's no 2.5.
All in all it appears to be a cheap product made for children's crafts and nothing more serious.
I would NOT purchase this item again.
When choosing to do another smaller project, I will definitely look to see what Paracord Planet has to offer in their 550, type III line.
Keep in mind when getting this, that if you have regular Paracord - it will take some work to piece that together with this one. The strands inside the Paracords I picked up at Home Depot & in a kit at Walmart, were both very different than this one! You may need to check the strength differences between 550, types I, II & III to understand the difference. This has a 7 strand cotton (I believe) inside that seems thinner but definitely lighter than Home Depot!
I receive about (or slightly over) 100’ of Paracord in this package
The cord itself is full size and round, not thin and flat like the cheap stuff often is. Colors are vibrant and per photos.
I have two complaints (hence minus one star:)
1, the length of each cord is 10 feet. For a normal adult sized bracelet you need 8 feet of cord (or two 4 foot pieces for a two-color bracelet. This means you will end up with 2 feet of cord that is wasted on each piece. They should either make them 8 feet, or 12 feet each to keep from wasting cord.
(UPDATE).. the below issue with clip design was for "boy scout" colors.. i just re ordered the "zombie" colors and the clips that came with them have the centering grooves,, they are also slightly translucent..
2, the clips are ok.. Size (3/8") is good and the colors are nice, but they do not have a self centering groove in the female side... If you look at the attached photo you will see the male side has the 2 arms that clip in, and a center arm that is designed to self-center the clip into the female end. This arm is also designed to keep the male section from popping loose if you twist the clips from side to side by keeping it aligned to the female side..BUT.. the female side does not have a groove or slot for the centering arm to mate into thus making it mostly useless. This is not a big deal if your just making bracelets for the kids, but if you want a really strong clip, these are not the best... that being said, your basically getting the clips for free so no big deal...

-Es paracord original de 7 hilos de nylon
-Los colores son muy buenos
-Viene con los broches para las manos.
-El largo de los paracord es de aproximadamente 3.5mts
-Los broches son pequeños (muy)
Los recomiendo mucho para el uso de hacer brazaletes.
I like the fact that the paracord was not super stiff (as some can be), which made it easier for my kids to use to make their own bracelets, and want to make more!
I did the shrink test (boiling water), and it shrank very little. I made one way to big, and had to put it through boiling water a few times for it to get closer to the right size I wanted, so shrinking happens a little at a time, which makes it better for us perfectionists to not miss our "mark", lol.
So yes, pleased well enough with it that I would definitely order from Paracord Planet again in the future.
I've had better deals elsewhere for less and got more. 54$...... for 1 paracord....
No where in description does it say only 1 that I saw. I went based on picture posted.
What now ???? I feel cheated and found better elsewhere.
Picture is deceiving as I expected bigger/longer cord than what came in especially for the price.
Quite a few items purchased on 1 order almost $200 so I'm disappointed.
The buckles are not the exact colour as in the listing and that's ok it's still a good match.
Buckles in my order are: purple, 2 white, 3 black, green, red, yellow, blue
There is an instructional leaflet explaining how to make a cobra bracelet. There are b/w diagrams for each step. I like this extra.
What I would do if I was making a different knot than cobra (square knot) is use core cords from scraps if you have any long enough that way you won't run out before you are done bracelet. Just a suggestion
I thought the cord was not as thick as the usual 550-7 strand I have on hand. Didn't count the strands when I wrote this product review. Once again, I don't mind thus the 5 stars.
