This is authentic Mil-Spec MIL-C-5040, Type III paracord, not the cheap imitations. It has the 7 yarn core and braided nylon sheath essential for giving this cord its strength. As such, it has the capability of holding a full 550 pounds, in accordance with the Mil-Spec. Properly bound in a hank, with sealed ends, this cord will work for any survival need, up to and including rappelling.

Available in six different colors and two different lengths, this should be part of every survival kit and bug out bag. What makes Paracord so good for survival, is the high weight rating for a very narrow cord. That makes it easy to pack, while providing a strong cord for any survival need.

Unlike other nylon cords, Paracord ties easily for all common knots. It is often used for making survival bracelets, belts and straps, attesting to its flexibility and ease of tying. When cutting Paracord, always be sure to heat seal the ends, to prevent unraveling.
