Paracord is extremely versatile, incredibly strong, and relatively inexpensive to purchase – which makes it one of the most ideal Survival Tools to keep in your backpack for camping, your Bug Out Bag, or even in the glovebox of your truck. We have curated our 25 favorite Paracord Projects with instructions on how you can create them yourself.
Background on Paracord
Paracord (or Parachute Cord) Is a light-weight, multi-purpose nylon cord that takes its name (and largely its origin) from World War II. What we currently call 550 paracord takes its design and tensile strength from the parachute cords for WWII soldiers, which could hold 550 pounds.
Now, modern survivalists, preppers, and even crafters use paracord to make all sorts of tools from wearables (like our SoS Survival Bracelet, belts, lanyards, and necklaces), dog leashes, key-chains, hammocks, and even defensive tools like a Monkey Paw.
