The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The GearAid Paracord 550 is a 9 meter, 4 millimeter nylon cord. Paracord was originally a mountaineering rope used by American paratroopers during World War II, hence the name! It is now a buschcraft staple as it is used for everything: clotheslines, knots, shoelaces, tent guy lines, belts, hanging food...
There are two thinner strands inside the main sheath, which can be useful for sewing or setting up a fishing line! You can keep it folded or wrap it around your water bottle or knife.
The Paracord 550includes a carabiner to attach various objects to it, or to hang the cord on your backpack.
