The Items you will find within these pages are a no-nonsense approach to Surviving Better. We understand the need for visual appeal, and also the need for function. Paracord products help to achieve these goals. With the constant uncertainty in the world we live in, many people are beginning to seriously think about survival. We feel that Self Defense is a KEY part of SURVIVAL. These are the basic driving factors for the products you will find here.

All of the Paracord used is AMERICAN MADE. The Paracord products are all HAND MADE.
The cord used is 550 Paracord Parachute Cord. 550 Paracord has a Minimum Break Strength of 550 pounds. Thus the name. Depending on which Manufacturer you will find the outer sheathing has a minimum break strength of between 200-305 pounds and each of the 7 inner cords has a minimum break strength of 35-50 pounds. Example: outer sheath 300Lbs + inner strands (36 lbs x 7strands) 250 lbs. These numbers vary a little from manufacturer to manufacturer, but all add up to about 550 pounds.
