The main ingredient in most of our gear is parachute cord. Also known as paracord, survival cord, 550 cord, or 7 strand utility cord, it is a remarkably strong rope for its size. It is a nylon kernmantle rope with an outer sheath (200lb strength) and 7-inner strands (50 lb strength each) that have a tensile strength of 550 pounds. It was originally used as suspension lines in World War II parachutes. Now, it is produced in a vast array of colors and is available to the public.
There are many other paracord companies out there, but none like Savage Expedition Gear. We have added a whole new twist to our products. Check out our S.L.A.B. product line!
