    Our 550 paracord has a 7 strand nylon core and a 550 lb. minimum breaking strength. Our cord is made in America by a certified U.S. Government contractor and comes in dozens of colors and multiple lengths ranging from 50' hanks to bulk paracord in 1,000' spools.

    Paracord is a must have for any "bug out bag" or survival kit. 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.

    It can be used for countless survival needs from tourniquets, nets and utility rope to building a shelter, making a fire bow and catching food. The seven strand inner core can even be removed and used as sewing thread or 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!

    Please view our Paracord Color Disclaimer for information on cord color variations. Also please note that a small percentage of spools may contain a splice. This is a normal result of the manufacturing process and is not a defect in the cord.

    The best paracord


    I use a lot of paracord and this is the best that I have found for braiding



    The color quality was wonderful, love the quality of the cord, love the spools the cord is on after having trouble in the past from other places. Can't beat the customer service I had dealing with The Paracord Store. Can't wait to to do business here again.

    My paracord of choice
