  I found this 550 type III gauge of paracord a little slippery when tying an Evenk slippery hitch around a tree for my hammock and would recommend a heavier / thicker gauge. No chance of this one breaking though, so it depends on what your purpose is and which knot you are making.

  I wouldn't carry anything else in my pack or pocket. When it comes to the best, it doesn't get any better than this.

  This Paracord seems very good so far. Also, it was delivered swiftly and with minimal packaging, which I appreciate. Thank you.

  What can I say. It's paracord. But it is good quality paracord, and that makes all the difference. Always nice to have a bit of extra cord with you when out and about.
