What is Paracord?
Originally used as the suspension lines for parachutes in the US during World War II, 550 paracord, also known as parachute cord, has now become a general-purposed utility cord that everyone may find useful.
Its outer sheath has 32 interwoven strands, whereas the interior hosts 7 inner two-ply yarns.
This construction gives the cord a smooth texture and high breaking strength of 550lb (~250kg).
These qualities have made the paracord the top choice of material to make EDC (Everyday-carry) accessories such as bracelet, waist belt and lanyard.
Unlimited uses of paracord:
Crafting: Paracord bracelet, wrist band, waist belt, necklace, keychains, guitar sling, camera straps, pet collar, pet leash, hammock, dreamcatchers, can holder, monkey's fists and many more!
EDC (Everyday-carry): Lanyards or handle wrap for tools such as multi-tool, knife, torch light and keys.
Emergency uses: Replace broken zipper pull, shoe-laces, bra strap and etc. Inner thread can be used as sewing thread, fishing line (or make a fishing net with it), clothes line, and even dental floss.
Survival in the wild: Camping, building traps and snares, tourniquet to stop bleeding, rescue line, bow string, bear bag.

How to identify good and bad quality paracord?
1. Quality - The cross-section area of good quality paracord is round whereas that of a poor quality paracord is flat.
2. Material - Traditional paracord is 100% made of nylon, while others may be made of other materials.
3. Burn test - Good quality paracord should burn slowly, whereas others will burn quicker when contacted with flames, and its smoke would smell similar to burned plastic.
4. Strength - Poor quality paracord would definitely struggle to withstand 550lbs of weight.
5. Price - If the price is too good to be true, beware!
