About Paracord

with No Comments

We make our paracord bracelets from 550 (Type III) genuine US military spec paracord sourced from the United States.

Parachute cord (also paracord or 550 cord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for many other tasks. It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the 82nd Space Shuttle mission, to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

paracord

The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic; depending on the application this can be either an asset or a liability.

While the U.S. military has no overall diameter requirements in its specifications, in the field 550 cord typically measures 5⁄32 inch (4 mm) in diameter.

How to get an accurate wrist measurement

Using a flexible measuring tape, measure the circumference of your wrist just above the wrist bone. If you do not have a flexible measuring tape, use a ribbon, a strip of paper, or string and mark where it overlaps on your wrist. Then measure the length against a ruler.
