Parachute cord or also known as parcord or 550 paracord is a rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Gaining wide spread popularity as a survival tool the paracord was often the first part of a parachute to be cut apart and retained for survival practices.
So how is paracord made? It's a complex interwoven braided sheath that has a high number of strands for its size and smooth texture. Due to this paracord, is used for a number of purposes including fashion, survival kits and of course parachutes. This has led to manufacturing in both civilian and military purposes. The 550 stands for 550 pounds of tensile strength.
Paracord can be used for a number of uses include repairing and securing equipment, shelter making, binding and even first aid. The inner strands (of which there are seven) can be gutted and used to make sewing fabrics and fishing line. Furthermore, it is possible to join or finish the ends of a single piece of paracord by melting it with a open flame. A paracord bracelet can contain anywhere from 8ft up to 24ft of usable paracord.
