Paracord - 100% Nylon, 550 lb break strength, 7 internal strands.

Paracord Properties:

Paracord is composed of 2 parts: the external sheath and the internal 7 strands.

Nylon sheath is rated for 200 lbs break strength
7 internal strands are rated for 50 lbs break strength each. Hence total break strength is 550 lbs.

Uses for Paracord:

A question that often comes up is: “What can one do with paracord?” The answer to that question is: “What one can’t do with it?”

Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord) was originally used by paratroopers during the World War II. Paratroopers later discovered that it was an extremely useful item to have around for other tasks besides holding up their parachute canopy, for example: attaching equipment to harnesses, tying rucksacks to vehicles, securing camouflage nets in the trees, shoelace replacement, belts, headbands, knife wraps or rifle slings, etc., etc.

Para cord is made from 100% nylon and has a high number of interwoven strands for its size – thus it has very smooth texture.

In a pinch you could use paracord for shelter building, tool and gear repair, for snares and traps, or making a bow and drill for starting fires. Since paracord is composed of 2 parts: the external sheath and the internal 7 strands, one can open the sheath and pull out the strands and use the individual strands as a fishing line or for fishing net repair.

Among the many creative uses of paracord is to fashion various belts, lanyards, bracelts and other decorative items. Sky is the limit.
