550 paracord type 3 was selected by the military for parachute usage. It is rated to hold 550 pounds and is highly favored for survival situations. We consider it one of the highest priority emergency essentials and it should be a part of go-bags and other survival supplies.
This survivor cord also includes fishing line, waterproof fire tinder, and conducive copper wire. Check out our review below.
Milspec paracord is used a lot in outdoor situations. This cord is 550 type 3 military-grade paracord and we recommend adding it to all day packs, backpacks, vehicle kits, and survival supplies.
SurvivorCord enhances standard 550 with a few additional non-native strands. They include fishing line, conducive copper wire, and waterproof fire tinder.
This military grade paracord is versatile with these possible Uses:
At minimum you should carry 50 feet. Many outdoor enthusiasts will store hundreds of feet just in case.
We bought a bundle to try it out. We have mixed feelings. The cord is as strong and useful as normal paracord. The fishing line works for fishing. The tinder is AWESOME for fire starting. We're not sure what to do with the wire because it's too thin for snaring (we suspect you could braid a few lengths together). In concept the intent is great. Here's the rub: you usually have to destroy the main cord to get to the other strands.
Recommendation: Carry normal cord for usual survival uses. Carry a small amount of SurvivorCord for the extra features.
