Be forewarned the color of the cord shown is not what you will receive. the cord is 550 paracord with 7 inner strands as specified. Have not put it up to a weight test yet, but to this point it has withstood all uses i have had for it. however, i ordered what i thought was to be an olive drab color and received a dark hunter green. the tan color was also a little off, it was closer to a very light khaki color. once again, there was no problem with delivery and the seller offered to refund my purchase, but again the cord quality is fine. the colors are just vastly different that what is pictured above though.
I have purchase this product to take care of some heavy duty jobs. I have exposed the product to water, dry environments, tension and grinding and still is holding great. One of the applications was to replace the cords of my military athletic boots. My boots face mud, rain, water, sand and other harsh situations on the frequently basis. They needed some cords that go side by side. This product, maybe not intended to fulfill that purpose, but it fit the bill perfectly.
I have also used this product for camping, supporting tents and camping structures (nothing that you buy but that you made out of resources of the nature). Great results.
