This is some quality 550 parachute cord. For all you novices out there, that means it's rated to 550 lbs. That's pretty awesome for such thin cordage. The price is very fair for the 50 foot section, at least compared to other sporting goods stores. Comes in several colors which is nice as well.Personally, I use this stuff to make my own hammocks and I've never come close to having it break. Paracord has endless uses when it comes to camping/backpacking or even survival scenarios. Definitely buy it.
