I don't like leaving a 5 star review, as no item is perfect. That said, I gave this item 5 stars as it is exactly what it was advertised to be. When I opened the paracord (which was shipped quickly by the way) I could see the 7 strands inside. The paracord holds my weight, 240 lbs, with not problem - which is what I was looking for. You shouldn't use this to clime mountains, there is better rope for that. But, it makes for great looking and long lasting shoelaces, camping line etc. I bought it for my knife, but I have found myself using it for everything. I highly recommend keeping some in your emergency kit, your car and anywhere else you may find yourself needing it at some future point. This stuff doesn't rot, so it will be there when you need it. It may not be military grade (I can't say if it is or isn't myself), but I'm not going to be storming Iraq any time soon, so if it's not, that's okay by me.

Bought 300' so far.....indispensable. Keep some in wife's car, truck, work truck, make lanyards outta it....tie down ANYTHING....use as boot laces(laces that will never break)...hang antennas from trees...or to tease the cats with......love this stuff....and it's the real deal...not some Chinese ripoff stuff.

I have bought 600 feet of Rothco brand paracord in the last few months. What was sent was some generic off the wall brand and the color was not even close to what I ordered. I would not recommend ordering from this company. They don't send what is pictured or the Rothco brand for that matter.

For those of you making paracord bracelets or skydiving, this stuff is not real paracord. If you compare this stuff with real paracord (the stuff you get at an army navy surplus store)it is very clear that this stuff flatens easily an has very little structure. Look Somewhere else.

This stuff is no good! It "puckers", or wrinkles up without even being used. I can't really explain it, so I had to take a picture. Also found that melted ends end up coming free, and fraying (also shown in the picture). I thought it was a fluke, but then did another end last night, and it was separating today. They melt OK, but they don't stay together. It's almost like the inner and outer sheaths don't mix when heated. Very weird.

Yeah it's cheap, but save your money on something else....

Got this for my emergency backpack. It is black and actually lightweight. The cord has seven white strands inside you can see it when you cut it. I was a bit frustrated because when I cut it it would fray and was hard to put back thru other items. I solved that problem by just lighting the end with a lighter to stop the fraying and it works fine. It wraps up nicely and will be in my backpack and attached to a lot of gear for easy access such as zippers and so on.

I recommend the product.

NOT ROTHCO cord, NOT MIL-SPEC, not 550, delivered in a zip lock bag. Not as advertised!! 7 strand inner with no color marker which proves its fake. Also only 2 inner braids per strand (should be 3) that also proves its fake. I'm not sure who the "Certified US Government contractor" was that made this cord. I will say that if they are indeed a "Certified US Government contractor" they are not certified to make Paracord. 1 star for the bait and switch. I would give the actual product a 2-3 since it is usable cord, but certainly not usable for what I wanted it for. My son can play with it in the backyard, but I wouldn't even put it in his day pack let alone mine.

Ah... Paracord. Its a lovely nylon mix apart from being amazingly strong and thinner than a pencil. It can be stretched out to secure items and is very unlikely to snap or brake. In the boot camp I had a teammate that didn't have great memory so we attached his items to his pant's with Paracord. Took us long enough to cut it off him when he learned his lesson. It can be used for emergency climbing but, I don't suggest it since the small rope can flatten out and burn your hands badly. Then again if it's an emergency I don't think rope burn is your biggest worry. Over all paracord is wonderful.
