OD Green 550 Paracord 100 ft.
Our nylon parachute cord, also called paracord or 550 cord is made in the U.S. by a certified government contractor. It is certified 550 lbs. test cord with seven internal strands and a colored woven exterior. It is GSA compliant and meets Mil-Spec. You will find it to be durable, water-resistant, rot-resistant, and surprisingly strong.
This para cord is trusted and used by our armed forces. Paracord is the ultimate utility cord and proves itself useful whenever you need something stronger than string or twine but lighter and less bulky than a rope. Ideal stuff for tie-downs, cargo transport, camping and more. Keep it in your car, your pack, your bug out bag, your camping gear, or your work bench for quick tie downs, rapid gear repairs, or simply to replace a lace in your boot.
Paracord is also used by military personnel and artisans to make bracelets, lanyards and other woven or knotted accessories. It can also be used to wrap the shaft of a knife or impact weapon, improving the grip. There are as many uses for paracord as there are creative people.
We offer paracord in 50-foot, 100-foot, 600-foot and 1000-foot lengths. Please be sure you select the color and length you need.

US Military issue paracord is specified under the MIL-C-5040H standard. The Mil-Spec specifies six types: I, IA, II, IIA, III, IV. Type III, the most common, is nominally rated with a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds, thus the term "550 cord". The US military specification for paracord contains specific denier figures for the sheath strands and inner yarns, but there are no overall diameter requirements for the cord.
NOTE: Due to your monitor settings as well as the manufacturing process some paracord colors may vary slightly from how they appear on your screen.

Worked so well! Was easy to tie hitch Knotts in. I didnt need it to hold an adults weight so I dont know about that but it held a tarp during a very strong wind gusts for multiple days. When I went to breakdown camp it still felt like new rope.

I have purchased several colors for my Girl Scouts to make survival bracelets. The colors hold beautifully! I mean 2 years of wear later its still blue! Unfortunately the outer layer shrinks back quite a bit so you have to use your lighter quickly to keep the ends manageable. The rope remains sturdy.

Bought this red paracord to utilize as zipper pulls. It has a beautiful contrast to my all black go bag! I also carry 100 feet of it in my pack for any emergencies that may arise. I love the rich red color.

Not as thick as I expected but it worked perfectly for the draw string bags I was making. They turned out excellent! Very happy with the paracord!

I looked far and wide for a paracord rope that was super colorful yet still held up. I can happily say that this is exactly that. I used it to make rope halters. They clean up nice and are still as bright as they were the day I bought them!

Nice pattern... only used it to wrap a roll cage to reduce heat... Be careful 100 feet isnt as much as you might think depending on your project. VERY difficult to unravel from original packing without creating knots... spent 15 minutes unraveling it.

Good price and fast shipping! Looks like good quality. The last cord was 10 years old when replaced. Used under stress holding up a heavy wire antenna system and placed over abrasive tree limbs without pulleys.

Seems strong enough. Have not tested it as I am using it to wrap handles . Works well and looks good.

This is a decent product especially for the cost. I used it for a paracord craft.
