Size: 8-Strand, 110 Ft. HankColor: Olive Drab Green 107 8 or 11 Strand MilSpec Verified Purchase
Good Paracord. Like the stuff I used in the Army. I wanted black, received od green. I double check the when I placed the order for black. When it arrived I checked the order # and there it said od green. I'm not sure who's fault it was, and I'm ok with it being od green. I'll just take a star off for the wrong color.

***Update, I had originally rated this purchase with 4 stars, I have changed it to 5 stars after Darren of the company contacted me (not me contacting them) and was quick to make sure I was squared away. ***So many things about this company say quality. The product is legit and exceeded the standard. The Customer Service was impeccable. After your purchase of the paracord you will receive 3 paracord emails that are lessons in paracord history, paracord history, company history. This is one of those rare companies today that wants to earn your business with quality and hard work, not trying to get your hard earned dollars with the cheapest minimal effort.

Get your cord here, the company lives and breathes its product and the product exceeds the standard.

((((HOOOOOAH))))

Size: 8-Strand, 110 Ft. HankColor: Olive Drab Green 107 8 or 11 Strand MilSpec Verified Purchase
There are many examples of "Mil Spec Paracord" or "550 cord" for sale out there; the challenge is to sift through them all and find the real stuff. Sift no more, you've found it. This cord is manufactured to the specifications in C-5040H (ALL of them; you can read about the specifications if interested), and the tensile strength exceeds the published standard (550 pounds) by a hundred pounds. It handles well without getting slippery, and I find the 110 foot length to be just about perfect; it's easier to pack these lengths than it would be to pack a 1000 foot spool. I've used it to wrap knife handles, make a dog leash, improvise shelter and used it anywhere one or more items had to be secured to something else on the ground, on a boat and on a plane. This stuff is like WD-40(c) or duct tape - it's so useful you just want to go find another way to use it! Ordering was Amazon-easy and Amazon Prime meant it got to me in two days without a shipping charge. Short version of the review: (1) the real deal, high quality at a fair price; (2) easy ordering; (3) rapid delivery (Amazon Prime); (4) If you're looking for honest-to-goodness Mil-Spec Type III Parachute Cord - PIA/Mil Spec C-5040H Compliant, then you should buy this.

Size: 8-Strand, 110 Ft. HankColor: Camo Green 483 8-Strand MilSpec Verified Purchase
I was very impressed with the fast delivery (got it a day early even). Then the true test was when I pulled out the 550 from the bag that it came in. Sure as shoot'n 8 strands. I compared it to several different types of "commercial type III" that I have been using for practice and there is really no comparison. This cord is far superior to anything I have used to date. Not only does it look good, but it ties extremely well. I’ve made four bracelets with it and they look awesome. I took my last 20’ and did a coxcomb wrap on a walking staff. The cord was fantastic. It wrapped tight and was very uniform in appearance. If I had to rely on 550 paracord for any type of cordage in a survival situation or for any other purpose, this is the 550 that I would trust.
Update: Just received my second order. It arrived just as fast as the first order. Also, I ordered Cranberry, Camo green, and Black. All were extremely consistent and very easy to work with. Mike Cantrell Phoenix, AZ

I just made a great survival bracelet for my daughter with this paracord. She recently moved to Colorado and have made some friends who goes hiking with her. This will be an extra survival tool that she can wear around her wrist and use when she needs it.

There are so many colors and types of paracords to choose from but color was not the deciding factor for me in my decision. Instead I looked for military grade paracord--one that was strong, lightweight, durable and resistant to the elements. I found this one that fits the bill and I am very pleased with the quality of this high grade cord. Comparing this paracord with similar ones that are also Type III Spec C-5040, the breaking point of this one is greater at over 600 lbs while the others were at the standard 550 lbs. This one also has 8 inner nylon cords while most have 7 for this type of paracord.

I was first introduced to paracords by my daughter when she was in Girl Scouts. During her time in there, she learned how to use the paracord as a survival tool and made all sorts of things with them that most would not even think of. Most use paracords simply as a rope, but the individual strands inside the outer nylon cord can also be used for such things as dental floss when a toothbrush is not available, thread for sewing emergencies, fishing line to fish with, and more. My next project will be a paracord belt for my daughter using the remainder of the cord. Once the belt is taken apart, my daughter will have substantial length to do even more if needed during her hikes. I made a really good choice buying this paracord.

I was searching for some paracord on Amazon. To my dismay, a lot of paracord available is not the real stuff. I have had many versions of paracord, but nothing like this. This is indeed the highest quality and strength paracord I have ever had. At first I was a little uncertain reading the other reviews for this product. They kinda appeared to good to be true to me after reading other peoples reviews. They kinda seemed generic lol. But I went ahead and took the chance anyway. The seller shipped immediately and the package arrived several days before its first estimated arrival day. I give both the seller and the product an A++. I will be buying all my paracord from this seller from now on. The only problem I have is that I wish it was in larger hanks and spools, otherwise I guess I'll be buying it 110ft at a time. I highly recommend these guys for your paracord needs. Not very often am I satisfied enough to write a review, but this cord and seller deserve it! Do yourself a favor and look no further!
