Military Spec Paracord: meets the toughest requirements
Military Spec Paracord, or MIL-C-5040 Paracord adheres to all set military requirements and is therefore used by soldiers and police units. This nylon cord is comprised of a core of seven thin strands, of which the core strand is comprised of three layers of braided strands. The whole is tied together a little tighter than normal paracord, but is still more flexible in use. Mil-spec paracord has a special colour marker in the core of the cord. As such you can distinguish this type of paracord from normal paracord.
Just like normal paracord, mil-spec is available in multiple colours. On the internet you can find a number of instruction videos on how to use mil-spec. For instance, how you can use it to make a nice lanyard or bracelets.
