COLD ZERO Survival takes pride in offering USA MADE GENUINE MIL-C-5040 Parachute Cord at the best value available. Our Mil-C-5040 Type IV 750LB Parachute Cord is made by a Department of Defense Certified Manufacturer and is the same Parachute cord that is used by the United States Military. Our Parachute cord is packaged for convenience, so you no longer have to deal with the tangled mess that you get from loose paracord in a bag. Our 750LB Type IV Parachute Cord is constructed with 100% nylon. The sleeve is constructed by braiding 32 3-ply nylon yarns to create an abrasion and UV resistant weave. The core, which handles the brunt of the load, is constructed of 11 nylon yarns that are each twisted in a 3-ply creating a total of 33 core ends. The finished product meets the US Government Spec resulting in the ultimate utility cord with 200lbs of added breaking strength compared to 500 paracord.
