Paracord: It's Not Just for Jumping Out of Planes

Parachute cord, or paracord as it has more commonly become known, is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope woven to produce superior strength, durability, and flexibility. It is so durable and useful, in fact, that it was originally used in the suspension lines of the parachutes used by paratroopers in World War II. After the soldiers parachuted from their airplanes, they found this exceptionally durable parachute cord to be vital in many other tasks, and probably, for sheer survival in some situations. The applications are practically endless, and today both military personnel and the civilian population utilize paracord for a variety of activities and projects. Whether you are a survivalist or not, we’re sure you can put a roll of our military-grade paracord to good use!

100 Ft. Black Savage Paracord Made in USA

Each roll of our paracord is carefully constructed by weaving multiple strands of heavy-duty nylon together, around an impressive seven-strand core, to form the paracord. The all-nylon construction creates an overall smooth but flexible property in the cord. Our Black Savage™ Mil-Spec paracord meets the generally accepted standards for military use, but you don’t have to be in the military to get it! This Type III, 550 lb. paracord isn’t that imitation garbage that many people try to pass off as the real deal. Ours is the real deal—constructed right here in the United States! You won’t find tougher paracord at a more affordable price anywhere else!

We also offer it in a variety of colors from which to choose, too, in 100-ft. and 300-ft. rolls.

Another option for you is our best-selling Elite Forces survival bracelets from United® Cutlery. Each of these bracelets is meticulously woven of military-spec, 300lb. paracord. Not only do you have a cool bracelet, these bracelets can be unwound to produce more than nine feet of paracord for you to utilize should you face a survival situation. It can be used for shelter-building, splint-building, spear-lashing, building animal snares and countless other tasks and possibilities.
