This Safety Green paracord is rated with a minimum breaking strength of 550 pounds, this is why this type of paracord is also known as 550 cord.
This length of quality paracord is approximately 5/32 of an inch (4mm) in diameter. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all-nylon construction of this neon green 550 paracord makes it slightly elastic.
This american made paracord works to make Safety Green survival bracelets (aka Safety Green paracord bracelets) and functions well for survival usage and many other purposes. While 550 cord was originally designed for field use by paratroopers, it is now used as a general purpose utility cord (military rope) by both military personnel and civilians. This versatile survival cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.
