A type III paracord is commonly referred to as a “550 paracord”. With seven to nine core yarns, type III has either a 32/1 or 36/1 sheath structure. This is an ideal choice for the majority of survival tasks.
Cordage is useful, versatile and handy on almost every backpacking trip. Perfect for; setting up tarps, hammocks, and impromptu shelters, as emergency lashings to attach kit, or if your boot laces fail.
The braided inner cord can be used as a fishing line or for sewing in a survival situation. Wrapping a few meters of cord around a knife hilt or trekking pole will ensure you have some Paracord close at hand should you need it.
