Overall Rating
One of the highest quality paracord I used. The shipping was fast and I'm sure I will buy again from this store in the future. Review by shawn fischer (Posted on 2/19/2017)
True Mil-Spec paracord is good stuff.
Overall Rating
This stuff is great, weather your looking to make novelty items or just use it as cordage. I have used it in my Arizona back yard and it has withstood 7 years of direct sun and weather and is still going strong. It has outlasted every other kind of rope, cordage and twine I have used to tie up garden items/trees. This is true Mil-Spec 550 paracord as it has at least 7 inner strands made up of 3 individual threads and of corse one strand has the color identifier. Great stuff and a good price. No hassle ordering and it arrived in just a few days. Review by Marc Pearson (Posted on 2/18/2017)
