This 7 strand paracord is from the same manufacturer as our 8 strand cord. They no longer manufacturer the 7 strand cord, which allows us offer this one color at a discount.
This cord is straight from a US military parachute supplier, where they use the absolute best nylon they can find to make cord on which soldier's lives literally depend. You may not need to jump out of a plane into enemy territory in the pitch black of the night, but this stuff will still work great for repairing gear, pitching tarps, or any other task where you might need high quality cordage.
The paracord is an outer sleeve of nylon with 7 inner nylon strands. You can easily pull the inner strands out and use them separately for small tasks, or keep it all together to make sure you have some very tough cord. The cord, of course, meets military specs and is rated to break at 550 lbs of stress (200 lbs for the outer sleeve and 50 lbs for each inner strand).
Please keep in mind that even though this is high quality paracord, it is still not meant to support human weight. The weight ratings are for static weight, not your rappelling down the Swiss Alps.
