Useful 7 strand cord almost like 550 – Military Army Survival Parachute Rope - Khaki (30M/140KG Max. Tensile) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Very useful piece of quality nylon cordage, nice and thick, almost like a 550 cord, just a little bit thinner (it is barely noticeable, the difference is like 0.5 mm, although it is not as good in quality as a true 550). 30m is plenty for any usage, also you can strip the inner strands and use them separately.
Cons:
None, but it came it a really strong plasticky smell, it was away when i left it for couple hours on open air.
Other:
The color is a little bit darker than on the picture. It is not that golden, it is more darker shade of tan. Not sure if it can hold 140kg, but 100 should be fine. Use it wisely, and not for climbing.
Bottomline:
Fair price for a good long piece of cordage with many uses.
