What's With All The Paracord Stuff?

OK, so although we offer Paracord, basically a wad of rope, over the past year or so, sales have gone thru the roof. So I decided to look into why? Although I'm not 100% sure, it seems that many people are using it to make other items, such as paracord bracelets, lanyards, belts, necklaces and key chains. Army Navy Shop offers paracord in many different lengths and colors. I guess it's more of a craft item than an end user product. If you've never seen paracord, it's actually kinda cool. It's not like that thick rope you see in home improvement stores. It's only 5/32" thick, but has a 550 pound test strength.... that's pretty strong! It's usually made of 100 nylon and has a 7 strand core. If you are a creative kind of person, you could come up with all kinds of things that you could make using paracord. One guy made himself a guitar strap with it. Since it is available in many colors, you could even incorporate a pattern into whatever you are making. Why not share you're ideas or experiences with how you use paracord. We'd love to hear from you.
