Overview

550 Paracord gives duct tape a run for it's money in the versatility department! Parachute cord, or paracord, was originally developed during WWII. Human creativity realized this product to its full potential by using it for lashing gear, repairing backpacks, hanging food bags, replacing broken shoelaces or as laundry line. The options are endless.

Remove the inner core threads for even more versatility, as they become true survival tools. Use them as sewing thread, fishing line, trap snares, even dental floss!

Working directly with a certified US government contractor, we created a Garrison Outfitters® original 550 / Type III Commercial paracord, in our own proprietary pattern, derived from the color palette of our logo! Our paracord has a soft hand and minimal stretch with deep, rich and consistent color.
