Paracord (English Parachute cord, paracord, for type 3 - 550 cord) is a lightweight polymer cable made of nylon, originally used in parachute lines. Paracord can be used for many other purposes, both military and civilians.

The paracord shell is woven from a multitude of interwoven fibers, making it relatively smooth. Paracord, made entirely of nylon is quite elastic.

Technical standards for the production of paracord are published by the Parachute Industry Association. The US Army Standard MIL-C-5040H allows the manufacture of paracord only from nylon. Similar types of cables can be made from other materials, such as polyester.
