Paracord or 550 cord is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. 550 Paracord is nominally rated with a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds, thus the sobriquet "550 cord". In an emergency, you can use your paracord in dozens of different survival situations.
