Paracord is your best friend in an emergency situation. Paracord is made from nylon which gives it flexibility and strength. Not only can 550 nylon paracord hold up to 550 pounds, but it can also withstand nature's elements and is mold resistant. Carry a paracord keychain with you to stay prepared for any situation, or you can even braid your paracord into a bracelet or lanyard so it's easy to take along. Whether you're using a paracord to tie up your lawn chair in your garage or using them to tie branches together in the wilderness, a paracord always comes in handy. Be sure to have a paracord in your emergency survival kit, bug-out bag, emergency shelter, and in your pocket so you can be ready for anything life might throw at you.
