What is Paracord?
Made from 100% Nylon, 550 paracord was originally used during World War II as the suspension lines in parachutes. Once the soldiers realized the versatility of this cord, they would cut it off and take it with them.
Also known as Survival Cord, 550 paracord can be used as is to replace any other rope, plus the inner strands can be removed and used as well.
The sheath will support 200 lbs (tensile strength) and EACH of the 7 inner strands can hold 50 lbs (tensile strength) each. giving a combined strength of 550 pounds.
