Benefits Of 550 Paracord In The Wild

Rope has so many uses in the outdoors. Some cord is better for survival than others. Military 550 cord tops them all in my opinion. This video will show and explain why. It’s versitile, light weight, extremely durable, strong(550lbs.), and the interior threads can be taken out and used for smaller tasks. For Survival it’s your best choice. Also good for camping, hiking, backpacking, hunting, and even general everyday use.

Where do you buy your paracord?

April 30, 2010

I bought cord advertised as 550, but it turned out to be 440 type 2, with 6 inner strands. 400lb Strength.

Great vid! Yeah I got 8 interior strand and it is great!

Thanks for the vid, Ryan. On your advice, I bought some. I could have done with it in French forests over the past ten days but better late than never. For fellow Limies out there, the real McCoy 550 is available at I got it today, disassembled a sample and it’s true to form nylon 7 strand internal and you can eventually break it down to filaments thinner than a human hair. 50ft for £3.98 shipping included, and any weird colour you like, if you don’t go for olive!

July 21, 2010

July 26, 2010

stupid question what do you use paracord for

July 28, 2010

too long, wanted to see the benfits, and didn’t hear any until almost halfway through, ok info though

July 30, 2010

There are 3 types of paracord there is the crap kind Wich he showed then there is the good kind wich he showed then there is paracord that looks like it is braided but it’s like 2 times thicker than regular cord wich is the best but it didn’t have the interior strands.

July 30, 2010

Great video dude! Just noticed the Twicth II. My personal EDC knife!


August 5, 2010

nice, but how strong are the interior strings?

August 12, 2010

Just for your info, there is actually 14 interior strands. The 7 strands are double twist, so theres even more bang for your buck. Next to duct tape, this is man’s greatest invention.

August 16, 2010

I was thinking it would be cool to wrap the grip of my pistol with some sort of 550 cord pattern. Does anyone know if this has been done before or if its possible/bad idea? I was going to take off the wooden side panels on the revolver and then wrap it in 550. What do you think?

September 5, 2010

lol “this is just pure crap….”

September 19, 2010

could you tell me would para cord hold up a camping hammock

September 20, 2010

=) my belt is paracord, cobra stitch with an overhand knot to hold it in place. and i finnaly learned how to make a daisy chain today knew how to make a cobra stitch for about a month now.

The easiest and cheapest way to get good paracord is to go to any AAFES store.

Tech tip for making videos:
Never shoot against your light source. This will cause the aperture in your camera to shrink, meaning the video image will come out too dark and create way too much contrast. Instead, place your source next to you or behind you so that it casts light in the same direction as your eyes.

Also, try to avoid incandescent light bulbs as they make everything look way too yellow. Try fluorescent light instead, the video image may come out greenish but it looks better!
