Paracord 550

 

 Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord when referring to type-III paracord) is a lightweight ylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of parashutes. This cord is useful for many other tasks and is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians.

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic.
