History of Paracord

Paracord or Parachute cord is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope which was first used in World War II in the suspension lines of the US Parachutists. Soldiers also cut the suspension lines and were able to take out the core to use for a number of purposes such as fishing lines, thread to sew with, replacing boot laces, securing cargo or tarpaulins.... the variety of uses is almost endless.

Paracord is now used as a multi-purpose utility cord both in the military and with civilians alike. It has even been used by astronauts during the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble telescope.
