One can say that 2012 is the year of Paracord! From Survivalist to Soccer Moms, paracord can be seen everywhere.
To meet the overwhelming demand of the product, Rothco recently expanding its offering by introducing polyester paracord. This new cord is just as strong if not stronger than then nylon cord. The average test strength of the polyester cord is 727 lbs, well above the 550 lb industry standard and despite the fact that the item is imported, the quality equals or exceeds that of the U.S. made.
The polyester paracord allows for a more flexible finished product and there are NO problems melting the cut ends of the cord. Comparing the USA made vs. the polyester for the paracord projects (bracelets/necklaces) people have found that the finished product seems less stiff and bends around the wrist/neck more comfortably.
Rothco has recently brought in 10 different colors of 100 foot polyester Paracord. The spectrum of colors includes OD, Tan, Safety Green, Orange, Safety Yellow, Red, Rose Pink, Hunter Green Royal Blue and Charcoal Grey and more colors coming soon; Black, White, Woodland Camo, Desert Camo and Army Digital Camo. What’s great about these colors is that they can be worn for fashion, school spirit, as a symbol of strength honor, and support. For instance, a pink paracord bracelet is a great way to show support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
