Paracord is one of the most useful survival tools around. That's exactly why it's still being used by the military to this day (Mil Spec). With its tough nylon outer shell in place, paracord can be used as a standard piece of cordage. Pull the outer shell off and you're left with 7 durable inner strands which can be used in 100 different ways. This makes Paracord one of the most useful survival tools you could ever own.
Add this to your bug-out-bag or survival gear and you’ll be able to rest a little easier if SHTF.
