550 paracord type iii commercial grade is manufactured to the high specification as military paracord. The only difference is commercial cord is available in a wide Spectrum of colours well outside the small specific colour requirements of the military. The cord features seven inner strands and has a breaking strength in excess of 550lb.

This "Wild Elk" paracord is the second highest rating - type III (the seller claims a breaking strain in excess of 250kg).
At the same time, I bought Web-Tex 100m Roll of 3mm Para Cord - Olive Green (also see 100m Paracord on Reel) for situations where I do not need a high breaking strength. It costs half the price per metre but has a far lower breaking strain (a *maximum* of 70kg according to the seller as opposed to Wild Elk's advertised *minimum* of 250kg) - this cheaper alternative appears to be Type I or Type IA. Beware the word "maximum" - I can imagine people weighing 60kg thinking it is safe to be suspended by it.
By buying both, I don't waste this premium paracord on light duty needs.
I have found paracord very useful for those jobs in the house that just crop up, as well as for bushcraft. Within two weeks of buying it on a whim, I suddenly found I needed some cord for a job in the house.
You may be interested to know that there is a reflective version of this paracord although only in black, orange & brown: 550 Paracord Type III Commercial 7 Strand 100ft Black Reflective, ...Read more ›
Seems to be made of a different outer material than the last paracord I bought, more slippery and silky feel to it. Not that that matters really.
