Paracord - Sold by The Foot
Paracord, Also known as parachute cord or 550 cord, it was originally used in parachute lines during World War II. Once on the ground, troops saved the cord and used it for multiple tasks. Today, it is used as a general purpose cord by all branches of the military.
Our 550 commercial paracord is made in America by a Certified U.S. Government Contractor. It has a 550 lb. minimum breaking strength and comes in multiple colors and is sold by the foot. We have up to 1000 feet continuous.
Paracord can be used for tying on bolt snaps, marker bags, reels and many other scuba needs.
Paracord can be used for countless survival needs from tourniquets, nets and rappelling rope to building a shelter, making a fire bow and catching food. The seven strand inner core can also be removed and used as sewing thread and fishing line.
Outdoor enthusiasts and crafters use paracord to create unique projects including paracord bracelets, lanyards, keychains, belts, whips and dog collars.
Whatever your adventure, wherever you go, make sure paracord is in your bag!
