This is our Commercial Grade version of the Military MIL-C-5040H Type III Parachute Cord and basically is the same product using 100% nylon materials and undergoing many of the same manufacturing steps. This 550 Survival Cord is always manufactured with 100% nylon raw materials and offers a full seven strand core. Not all 550 cords can meet these specifications. This cord does!
This Type III Commercial Grade 550 Survival Cord features seven individual 100% Nylon inner core strands that are cabled. The inner core strands not only serve to add strength to the overall product integrity, but sections of the core can be used as sewing thread, fishing lines, and many other survival uses. This cord is great for outdoor camping, hunting, tactical, survival bracelets and more. Our nylon material is very strong and pliable and seen as a standard “must have product” by many hunters and backpackers.
