Paracord is short for “parachute cord,” and its initial design function was in the construction of parachutes in the Second World War. Basically it’s what connects a parachutist to his canopy.

The best quality paracord is generally regarded as that with US Military Specification. Real parachute cord has a tensile strength of 550 pounds. As a Kernmantle rope type, its interior core is protected by a woven exterior sheath that optimizes strength, durability, and flexibility. The interior core consists of 14 individual strands, twisted in groups of two to form the 7 strands commonly cited.

Due to the many uses that a high quality cord has in a field environment, Paracord has found its way into the commercial market. A good survival kit should have at least 50 feet of paracord. One of its many uses is the fashioning of paracord survival bracelets, which are in use today by military, law enforcement units and civilians worldwide. Paracord survival bracelets are for sale elsewhere in this store.
