What Are Parachute Cord Bracelets?The parachute 550 cord bracelets are worn by many US military members signifying deployment, typically countries in the Middle East. It is also worn in remembrance of POW/MIA service members during National conflict. The parachute 550 cord bracelets are also popular among civilians to represent their school colors or cancer awareness. Parachute cord (also known as paracord or 550 cord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic; depending on the application this can be either an asset or a liability! The same properties which soldiers appreciate in paracord are also useful in civilian applications. After World War II parachute cord became available to civilians, first as military surplus and then as a common retail product. These parachute cord bracelets are also termed as "survival bracelets". The yarns of the core can be removed when finer string is needed, for instance as sewing thread to repair gear or fishing line in a survival situation, as well as handy for camping, boating, and clothes line.
