2.7 Wat is paracord?

Paracord from 123paracord.nl is a US Made paracord that consists of a core of threads in a woven nylon sheath. The word 'Paracord' comes from the use by American paratroopers during the Second World War. After a parachute landing, the cord was cut from the parachute and used for a variety of purposes. Due to the popularity of the cord today, there are many variants available in different qualities. Paracord Type III 550 is the most commonly used Paracord and has a breaking strength of 250 kilos or more.
