New Paracord, Survival Bracelets, and Paracord Accessories
Our new paracord items are in demand! Popular in the military for decades, paracord (also known as 550 cord, the most popular type of paracord with a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds) was initially used in suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Since then, this general purpose utility cord has been used for everything from towing gear to securing traps.
Paracord is one of the most versatile and essential items you can have in your emergency supply kit. In order to ensure that this cord is handy at all times, many people wear paracord survival bracelets. These para cord bracelets attach to the wrist and can easily be undone in times of need.
