Nite Ize 550 Paracord
Originally created as suspension lines for parachutes, the lightweight, semi-elastic strength and weather-resistant quality of braided nylon paracord makes it a versatile, durable alternative to rope, with hundreds of uses.
Tested for 550 pound break strength, the Nite Ize 550 paracord is excellent for bundling small loads and rucksacks, for use in harnesses, clothes line, dummy cords, guy lines, snare lines, hanging bear bags, for use as boot and shoe laces - any task where light cordage is needed.
In a pinch, you can pull the guts from the outer case and use the inner strands for fishing line, zipper pulls - even dental floss.

President Rick Case started Nite Ize as an undergraduate at the University of Colorado in 1989. "I was on a fishing trip using the brand new mini flashlight my family gave me as a gift. I was fishing at night with it, holding it in my mouth. Sure enough, I opened my mouth, and the flashlight fell out. I was staring down into the water, watching my still lit flashlight on the bottom when an idea hit me. That idea became the first product I ever made, the Headband Mini Flashlight Holder."
Case, who embodies the very essence of entrepreneurial spirit, built his successful company through dedication, inspiration and hard work. He was running the company from his mountain cabin when he received his first order for 42,000 Headbands. Years later the Nite Ize continues to expand with a large manufacturing facility and corporate offices based out of beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Case remarked recently, "You have to be passionate, have faith in what you are doing, and be persistent."
In years that have passed since that fishing trip, Nite Ize has grown from one bright idea into a company that makes and sells a wide variety of accessories, tools, and devices. Every product they offer is designed with creative innovation for superior functionality, manufactured with top-of-the-line materials for optimum durability, and here to make your life easier, safer, and a little more
fun - day and night.
