Paracord is an essential tool in any tactical or survival kit. Also called survival rope or 550 cord, this durable rope consists of a braided nylon sheath filled with smaller yarns, which can be separated and used for a variety of applications or kept together for an extremely strong cord. Originally used for parachute lines, this cord has a wide variety of potential uses, including attaching equipment to rack or harnesses, securing tarps and netting, tying down vehicle cargo, hanging hammocks, and even emergency climbing. Pulled apart into smaller pieces, paracord can be used as a bracelet, keychain, lanyard, boot lace, fishing line, or even sewing thread.
