Originally used by paratroopers in World War II as suspension lines for their parachutes. Once in the field, the paratroopers found many uses for it such as securing tarps, cargo, tents and even as boot laces. Now used as a general purpose utility cord by military personnel and civilians. Paracord was even used by astronauts during the STS-82 which was the second space shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
Paracord is one of the most versatile cords on the planet. It’s high-tech materials and construction enables it to be lightweight, strong, and compact. With an incredible 550 lb tensile strength, paracord can easily perform tasks and jobs that other similar cords cannot.
