I’ve decided to compile a list of 550 uses for 550 Paracord over the next few months for a blog post here at Willow Haven Outdoor. I already have a pretty big list BUT I need your help to make it to 550! Comment to this post with any SURVIVAL RELATED ideas/uses you have for PARACORD – get creative!
Did you know…
that true Military Spec 550 Parachute Cord has a tensile strength of 550 lbs? It is comprised of 7 inner nylon strands encased in a woven nylon outer shell. The nylon outer shell has a tensile strength of approximately 250 lbs. and each inner strand has a tensile strength of appromately 35 lbs. Each of the 7 inner stands can even be unwound into 2 smaller strands if absolutely necessary.
The survival applications of 550 Paracord dates back to WWII when soldiers in the field realized how incredibly useful it was for all kinds of tasks. Ever since, it has become the cordage of choice for many survivalists.
Join me in creating a list of 550 uses for 550 paracord!
Remember, it’s not IF but WHEN,
