Military paracord (parachute cord)

Our military issue paracord comes right off of the original issue parachutes, so you know its the real thing. Type III commerical is the standard military issue and the strongest nylon para-cord you can get. The sheath provides most of the strength at 305 pound tensile strength , while the seven inner strands contribute 35lbs. tensile strength each. While this cord is practical for many uses, it also has become great material for those that want  to weave bracelets and slings that provide great strength and also serve to hold extra rope for any emergency you may incur that would  necessitate some good utility line.
