ITS 550 Jute Paracord (Type III)
We’ve taken the proven concept of Type III Paracord and put a multi-purpose twist on it. Our Jute Paracord is made in the USA and built to exceed the Mil-Spec 550+ lb. tensile strength, while maintaining the same 7-strand kermantle construction you know and love. However, there’s one major difference that sets the ITS Jute Paracord apart, we’ve added an 8th inner strand with Jute natural fiber for fire starting purposes!
By simply removing the inner strands of the paracord, you can access the Jute core and roll it into a fire starting tinder bundle. It’s quick to spark with a ferro rod, like the one included in our ITS Engraved Swedish Mora FireKnife, which is demonstrated in the video below.
Available in 100 ft. lengths of (shown right to left) Black with Grey Tracer, Grey with Black Tracer and Coyote Brown with Black Tracer.
Our paracord exceeds the common Type III Mil-Spec 550 lb. test rating by utilizing two internal 2000 denier yarns in each of the seven internal strands. When plied together, these equal 4,000 denier total per strand, giving an overall denier total of 28,000 without calculating the additional strength of the 8th Jute strand. Standard Mil-Spec Type III utilizes three internal 1050 denier yarns which only equals 3,150 denier in each of the seven strands, giving an overall denier total of 22,050.
We’ve also added QR Code links to the back of the insert card to take you right to the instructions for tying some of our favorite paracord projects! Even if you never have to use it to help start a fire, it’s the perfect complement to our ongoing Knot of the Week series on ITS Tactical, where we teach you through text, photos and video how to perfect your knot tying skills!
