50 feet of the perfect general purpose utility cord from Nite Ize. Originally created as suspension lines for parachutes, the lightweight, semi-elastic strength and weather-resistant quality of braided nylon paracord makes it a versatile, durable alternative to rope, with hundreds of uses. Tested for 550 pound break strength, our Nite Ize 550 paracord is excellent for bundling small loads and rucksacks, for use in harnesses, clothes line, dummy cords, guy lines, snare lines, hanging bear bags, for use as boot and shoe laces—any task where light cordage is needed. In a pinch, you can pull the guts from the outer case and use the inner strands for fishing line, zipper pulls—even dental floss. Made in the USA.
