If you are looking for the largest supplier of “REAL” Type III Survival Cord in the United States you’ve found them. We currently offer over 250 colors with limitless color combinations and the number is growing as we introduce new products or meet new customer demands. Our Commercial Grade version of the Military “550” Parachute Cord is basically the same product using 100% nylon materials and undergoing many of the same manufacturing steps. Our 550 Survival Cord is always manufactured with 100% nylon raw materials and offers a full seven strand core. Not all 550 cords can meet these specifications. We do.

Our Type III Commercial Grade 550 Cord features seven individual inner core strands that are cabled. The inner core strands not only serve to add strength to the overall product integrity, but sections of the core can be used as sewing thread, fishing lines, and many other survival uses. This cord is great for outdoor camping, hunting, tactical, survival bracelets and more. Our nylon material is very strong and pliable and seen as a standard “must have product” by many hunters and backpackers.
