What is the purpose of paracord?

The strength of this compact cord gets the 550 term from its ability to withstand 550 lbs. of weight. Paracord is used in survival situations, emergency situations, self defense, and every day uses. This type of cord has been utilized by NASA, the military, and normal folks-alike.


Invention of Paracord

Paracord, also known as parachute cord, was invented by the US military during World War II. It was initially used as a suspension line for parachutes, but soon became known for its versatility and strength. The origins of paracord can be traced back to the development of the parachute in the early 1900s.

Why is Paracord so Strong

True paracord is made from nylon, giving it great strength for its weight. Nylon is highly elastic and is resistant to rot, mold, and UV light.

Now a variety of people use it in different ways. Outdoor sports and recreational people have more focus on the survival and emergency uses of paracord such as using it for medical uses like a tourniquet, securing items, replacing or fixing broken cord or straps, helping in rescues (i.e. someone falling into the water). This versatile cord can also be worn as a bracelet.
