The 550 pound paracord (breaking strength of around 250kg) is the best type of string available to most of us. The reflective series offers an additional safety consideration, it has reflective tracers along the length of it, so when you shine light at it, it shines back and you know where your paracord is. Paracord application for outdoor and camping activities are plenty including for use as a paracord bracelet, tent guyline, tying up basically anything, an emergency life line (not designed for but can be used in emergency situations), snares and the list goes on with your imagination. The paracord is resistant to both rot and UV, so leaving it outdoors for a long time is not a problem.
Atwood's paracord has a polyester shell with nylon core threads and it is a commercial Type III cord. It has a kernmantle construction with an outer sheath (32 strand wooven) and 7 inner strands. These inner strands can be removed from the outer sheath for use in a variety of survival situations. Reflective tracers wrap around the cord making it a safer in the dark.
This paracord is great for anyone in the military, survival, or in fact any even those who want a fancy and unique bracelet! The reflective property makes it especially useful as a safety line or a tent guy line.
