As other reviewers may have mentioned, this is NOT the sort of cord you would want on a parachute, but these days I tend to sit in planes rather than jump out of them. This is a great, and great value thin cord, ideal for use in gardening, forestry and many other applications.
The spool, on the other hand, is such poor quality that it came apart as soon as I opened the wrapping, leaving me with a veritable spider's nest of 100 metres of cord. as I was planning to chop this into various lengths anyway, the hour and a half delay was a nuisance but not a major issue. If I was keeping it to take a little as and when required this would have been a nightmare.
Ties well, and easy to cut and seal (immediately seal with a lighter flame after cutting to prevent the weave from unravelling) so great for hiking and 'survivalists' too. Expect this on many 'Zombie Survival' lists on Amazon.
