[email protected] Paracord (short for parachute cord) is nylon rope with 7 inner strands that give it extra strength (can handle 550 pounds before breaking). It was originally used in the suspension lines of parachutes in WWII. Now it's made in a ton of different colors and used for various purposes. For each inch of bracelet, there's approximately 1 foot of cord used. These bracelets are nicknamed "survival bracelets" because you can disassemble them and use the rope for just about anything!
