Fairfax, Virginia - Parachute cord (also called paracord or 550 cord) is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II, due to its 550 lb. minimum breaking strength.  Once in the field, paratroopers found this cord useful for a host of other tasks. Today, it’s widely used as a general purpose and emergency utility cord by both military personnel and civilians.

The yarns of the core (commonly referred to as "the guts") can be removed when finer string is needed, for instance as sewing thread to repair gear, or to be used as fishing line in a survival situation.

With all the versatility that comes with paracord, we here at the NRAstore wanted to develop some practical and tactical gear that allows you to keep plenty handy at all times. So we came up with the NRA Tactical Survival Belt and Survival Sling.

The Survival Belt is constructed using a versatile two-cord weave that’s comfortable, useful and durable. When deployed, each belt will supply a whopping 96’-124’ of paracord that can be used as shoe laces, trip wire or even dental floss!

And every rifleman knows that a morning in the woods can unexpectedly turn into a survival situation. While your rifle can be considered the ultimate survival tool, your rifle sling can now double as emergency cord!

The NRA Tactical Survival Sling is made from 12 paracords, each 6’ long for a robust 72’ of emergency cord that can be used as a tow rope, pulley or even a tourniquet. The sling easily mounts to your rifle with the included swivel fasteners and can be adjusted from 24” to 43” in length.

Pick up these smart, innovative and practical survival products today from the NRAstore so you can be ready for anything!
