✓ WHAT IS MILSPEC PARACORD? Type III mil spec 550 parachute cord is an inexpensive, lightweight, tough and durable Kernmantle rope with truly extraordinary breaking strength, especially relative to its small diameter. It was initially developed by the United States military for use as parachute suspension lines during World War II. It continues to be used on both military and civilian parachutes today. Paracord is now manufactured in two general varieties: (1) tightly-defined Military Specification or “Mil-Spec” Paracord, and (2) undefined “Commercial” Paracord. Mil Spec Paracord is stronger and more reliable than “commercial” Paracord. Mil-Spec Paracord is also more flexible and “supple” than commercial paracord, making it an easy choice for crafters and hobbyists to use when making paracord bracelets and other paracord projects. Because of its small size, portability, affordability, versatility and exceptional breaking strength, mil spec 550 military cord has become a favorite survival, utility and crafting rope or cord used daily by both military and civilian personnel, sportsmen and hobbyists throughout the world. Paracord is also referred to as: parachute cord, 550 paracord, 550 parachute cord, 550 cord, survival cord, paracord rope, paracord string, parachute rope, military cord, cord for bracelets, survival cord, military cord, tactical cord & utility cord, among many other names.
