Paracord…aka parachute cord…aka 500 cord…is a durable and lightweight cord ideal for any survival situation and fits great inside a Bug Out Bag or Survival Kit. Paracord has an endless number of survival uses for outdoor enthusiasts, such as serving to build nets, construct tourniquets, or craft utility rope. You can even use paracord to help catch food or build yourself a shelter when out in the wild. The inner core strands even make great fishing line or sewing thread.
