5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality High Grade Cord for making a Paracord Survival Bracelet and Belt

Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2013

Verified Purchase

I just made a great survival bracelet for my daughter with this paracord. She recently moved to Colorado and have made some friends who goes hiking with her. This will be an extra survival tool that she can wear around her wrist and use when she needs it.

There are so many colors and types of paracords to choose from but color was not the deciding factor for me in my decision. Instead I looked for military grade paracord–one that was strong, lightweight, durable and resistant to the elements. I found this one that fits the bill and I am very pleased with the quality of this high grade cord. Comparing this paracord with similar ones that are also Type III Spec C-5040, the breaking point of this one is greater at over 600 lbs while the others were at the standard 550 lbs. This one also has 8 inner nylon cords while most have 7 for this type of paracord.

I was first introduced to paracords by my daughter when she was in Girl Scouts. During her time in there, she learned how to use the paracord as a survival tool and made all sorts of things with them that most would not even think of. Most use paracords simply as a rope, but the individual strands inside the outer nylon cord can also be used for such things as dental floss when a toothbrush is not available, thread for sewing emergencies, fishing line to fish with, and more. My next project will be a paracord belt for my daughter using the remainder of the cord. Once the belt is taken apart, my daughter will have substantial length to do even more if needed during her hikes. I made a really good choice buying this paracord.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Military Specification Paracord

I’m a big fan of multipurpose survival gear, having things on hand that can easily be used to make life easier can only be a good habit.

This Paracord in particular caught my eye because of the detailed photos and stats sheet. True to their word, this seller has the real deal. Not only that, but they send you a nifty email about paracord, additional uses, and how to tell the difference between the “good” stuff and the knock-off; so glad I finally decided on this particular seller.

Paracord is good to have around – whether you’re securing objects in the back of your car, tying up the trash and coolers so the bears can’t get to ’em, or making sure you have good emergency materials in your car or camping kit, you need solid mil-spec paracord. This stuff is it. It won’t break on you like the knock-off stuff, or get worn and frayed. It’s an absolute must for open-top Jeeps on 4×4 trips to keep your gear in the car. I haven’t tried some of the more interesting ideas (use it as a tow/extraction cable) or used it for fashion (redneck suspenders) but it sure does seem handy in any case.

Good Paracord. Like the stuff I used in the Army. I wanted black, received od green. I double check the when I placed the order for black. When it arrived I checked the order # and there it said od green. I’m not sure who’s fault it was, and I’m ok with it being od green. I’ll just take a star off for the wrong color.

***Update, I had originally rated this purchase with 4 stars, I have changed it to 5 stars after Darren of the company contacted me (not me contacting them) and was quick to make sure I was squared away. ***So many things about this company say quality. The product is legit and exceeded the standard. The Customer Service was impeccable. After your purchase of the paracord you will receive 3 paracord emails that are lessons in paracord history, paracord history, company history. This is one of those rare companies today that wants to earn your business with quality and hard work, not trying to get your hard earned dollars with the cheapest minimal effort.Get your cord here, the company lives and breathes its product and the product exceeds the standard.



5.0 out of 5 stars Paracord you can truly rely on

Sellers of paracord are so prevalent these days, it would not surprise me to soon see hotdog type sidewalk vendors with brightly colored umbrellas chanting “paracord here, get your paracord, olive green paracord!” Instead of using scantily clad women to draw your attention, these vendors would be muscle bound men in camouflage fatigues with gleaming jump boots.
So, with all these places to purchase your paracord, why not just get some at your nearest blue roofed big box store? I nearly did, but fortunately I examined it closely and it seemed thinner than it should be. Upon returning home, I set out to see if all paracord is created equally.
I was surprised to learn it is not. There are inferior versions, military spec versions, and then there’s Paracord 550 MilSpec.
Mil Spec means military specification, and if you want cordage you can depend upon, buy nothing less than paracord that is marked MIL-C-5040. That rating ensures you are getting military grade paracord, as opposed to lesser strength commercial grade. But if you want better than military grade, you should already be clicking the “add this to cart” button.
This cord is USA manufactured beyond mil-spec by adding an additional strand; an 11 strand version is also available. As I want this cord for camping purposes, I’m weight and volume conscious. And although this cord exceeds mil spec, it’s still competitively priced which made this purchase even sweeter.As a Prime member, I received my hanks of paracord in two days. It was better than I expected, probably because I was so used to seeing the cheap imitations. I like my new paracord so much, I’ll be purchasing more in the near future. Please note: I did NOT receive my paracord free nor discounted for an honest review. It was purchased with my increasingly worthless, overinflated and hard earned dollars.
