Type 1 parachute cord is a miniature version of the familiar 550 paracord. It's made of the same materials but in a more compact size and a tensile strength of 100 pounds. Just like Type 3-550 cord, Type 1 has a braided outer sheath with five individual strands inside. And like our 550 cord, we only offer certified Mil-C-5040 Type 1 cord manufactured to military specifications and is tested and certified for military use.
This is the perfect cord to include in your survival kit, or for general use in your backpack home or boat. Type 1 cord is small enough to fit most anywhere, strong enough to be useful for a variety of tasks and light enough that you won't even know that you're carrying it.
