Paracord review


SurvivorCord Type III Military 550 Parachute Cord with Integrated Fishing Line, Multi-Purpose Wire, and Waterproof Fire Starter. This high quality paracord has a breaking strength of 620 lbs. It can be found here on amazon; 

The brand name for this cord is called SurvivorCord. Along with the three inner emergency strands, are also 7 nylon strands,(one site reads nylon strands, the other reads polyester, I believe it to be nylon) giving it it's extra strength. The outer casing is nylon.

The cord comes in multi colors and comes in 100 ft lengths. The only thing missing here are the fishing hooks.
