A new way of adding buckles

Thanks to The Weavers of Eternity Renaissance, here’s another way of adding buckles to your paracord bracelets. It might not be any easier, but different and you might like it. This method seems to take some of the guess work out of figuring out how much paracord you’ll need for weaving you cool bracelets.  Send us a line and let us know what you think of this new method.

 

Let’s Get Tactical!

Our Tactical Cord is constructed just like our 550 cord, but has four inner strands rather than seven. It is thinner at 3/32″ in diameter and can handle a static load of 275 pounds.

Tactical Cord is perfect for outdoor use and can also be made into items such as bracelets, lanyards, and more. 100 feet weighs only 4 ounces, so you can throw a hank into you pack and never notice the bulk or weight. 100% nylon and made in the USA by a government contractor.

550 to much cord for you, try using tactical cord it might be the perfect fit for what you need.

Be the Cord…..

Paracord was originally designed during World War II for use as suspension lines of parachutes for the United States Military. While it is no longer used for parachutes, many other uses have been found by the military and by civilians. This cord is lightweight, thin (about 4mm diameter), and amazingly strong. We specialize in Type III paracord, which has a static load rating of 550 pounds.

550-paracord

Real 550 paracord, is constructed with a sheath which surrounds seven individual strands. All the material is 100% nylon (rather than inferior materials seen from discount paracord vendors). The sheath alone can hold a 200 pound static load and each strand can hold 50 pounds each. Therefore, it is referred to as “550” as the static load capacity is
7 x 50 + 200 = 550 lbs.

The cord here at ParacordStore.com is commercial Type III manufactured on the same equipment and by the same mills that currently produce cordage for the US military. All of our 550 cord is produced in the United States by GSA contractors. While the military has only a handful of colors (olive drab, black, coyote brown, red, and foliage green), we offer many colors, some very exotic such as our “zombie” patterns, red/white/blue, and neon pink.

Advantages of paracord in any situation (survival, camping, everyday use) include:
Strength: 550 pound static load, but only 5/32 inch (4mm) in diameter. Very thin & very strong.

Weight: 225 feet of cord is less than one pound. With all the stuff we need to carry, especially when on an outdoor venture, every ounce counts.

Versatility: Can be used in countless applications. With the ability to remove and unwind the inner strands, it may be used in applications where thin cord is required, even used as dental floss!

Water Resistant: Will not rot. Being 100% nylon, the cord drys very fast and is virtually unaffected by wet conditions.


Paracord Store – 550 Paracord

Easy to craft: An infinite number of crafts and patterns including bracelets, lanyards, belts, key fobs, and more can be easily constructed with instructions available on the internet. Be sure to check out our blog which has hundreds of posts about crafting paracord.

We recommend that everyone who is active in the outdoors carry a least one 100 foot hank of paracord in their pack. It is lightweight and is extremely useful when in the field. In addition, 550 paracord can be woven into a survival bracelet or other item such as a lanyard, fob, etc, which can be quickly disassembled so the cord may be used for lashing things together, fixing items, building shelter, fishing, and thousands of other uses. It “knotts” very well and firmly, but can also be loosened and unraveled so it may be repurposed.

Green frog on vine

  • A frog is an amphibian. They lay their eggs in water. The eggs hatch into a tadpole which lives in water until it metamorphoses into an adult frog.
  • Tadpoles look more like fish than frogs, they have long finned tails and breathe through gills.
  • An amphibian can live both on land and in water.
  • Although frogs live on land their habitat must be near swamps, ponds or in a damp place. This is because they will die if their skin dries out.
  • Instead of drinking water, frogs soak it into their body through their skin.
  • Frogs breathe through their nostrils while also absorbing about half the air they need through their skin.
  • Frogs use their sticky, muscular tongue to catch and swallow food. Unlike humans, their tongue is not attached to the back of its mouth. Instead it is attached to the front, enabling the frog to stick its tongue out much further.
  • The common pond frog is ready to breed when it is only three years old.
  • Frogs in the wild face many dangers and are lucky to survive several years. In captivity however, frogs can live for much longer.
  • Frogs can see forwards, sideways and upwards all at the same time. They never close their eyes, even when they sleep.
  • Remarkably, frogs actually use their eyes to help them swallow food. When the frog blinks, its eyeballs are pushed downwards creating a bulge in the roof of its mouth. This bulge squeezes the food inside the frog’s mouth down the back of its throat.

Now let’s make one!  Whose kids doesn’t like frogs!
