MIL-C-5040 Type III Parachute Cord and Type 1A Utility Cord


Genuine MIL-C-5040 Type III Parachute Cord should not be compared with the numerous copies on the market today. This is the official product used by the U.S. Military. It's military designation is MIL-C-5040 Type III, has a rated strength of 550 lbs, a flexible outer covering and 7 inner strands that can be separated and used for sewing in an emergency. This Genuine Paracord is Made in the USA by a U.S. Government Contractor.

The MIL-C-5040 Type 1A Survival Cord is a mere 1/16" in diameter yet has a tensile strength of 100 lbs. This is ample strenth for numerous survival uses to include medical, food gathering and shelter construction. Because it is smaller, you can get longer lengths in the same space as its stronger, and more famous cousin, the MIL-C-5040 Type III 550 Paracord. Our Genuine Type 1A Utility Cord is also made in the USA.
