Paracord, String & Bungees

What is paracord? A lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes. This versatile cord is now also widely used for a large number of other tasks and considered to be the best general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. Soft to the touch thanks to the high number of interwoven strands and fairly elastic due to its 100% Nylon construction. Current technical standards for the manufacture of cord for use in parachutes are published by the Parachute Industry Association. The US military MIL-C-5040H standard required the material to be nylon. Similar styles of cord are also manufactured with other materials such as polyester but the quality and strength does suffer as a result of the change from Nylon.
