There are various grades of paracord, all with different breaking strains - Type I, IA, II, IIA, III and IV, with a *minimum* breaking strength ranging from approximately 43 to 340 kg (Type I and Type IV respectively).

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,

Quick delivery and product as described. The colour, as I have noticed from other reviews of similar Wild Elk cord, is different to the picture (closer to a drab green actually). However, this does not matter to me as it still looks good. Have used it so far to weave a paracord bracelet and a matching belt! Off-cuts always useful to have in the camping bag too.

Cord itself is pretty strong (I can hang off it without it snapping (11 St)).

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.

Bit disappointed with this product to be honest. The colour that was delivered is not what was shown on screen. It was darker and looks more like Khaki green than a mid brown, so for this reason, ive given a 3 star. A shame as other colours I've bought I have been very happy with.
