What Is Micro Cord?

Compact and high-tech, our braided micro cord is lightweight, and incredibly strong. Micro cord is the perfect solution for tasks around the house or in the wilderness. Our U.S.-made micro cord is 1.18mm in width and comes in a wide array of colorful styles, making these rope cords perfect for crafting projects as well as more practical uses. Micro cord has a tensile strength of 100 pounds–plenty tough enough for most household and outdoor tasks.

How Does Micro Paracord Differ From Other Types?

A specific type of paracord, micro cord is simply smaller, as the name suggests. Other types of paracord (short for "parachute cord") have larger diameters (up to 5mm) and higher tensile strength. For example, 550 paracord has a tensile strength of 550 pounds, making it appropriate for heavier duty uses. As mentioned, our U.S.-made micro paracord has a diameter of 1.18mm and a tensile strength of 100 pounds — still quite strong, and in some instances, better suited for certain tasks.

What Can You Use Micro Cord For?

Micro cord has a ton of applications. Their durability and lightweight properties make these rope cords the go-to components for a variety of tasks:

  • Jewelry Making: Micro cord is the perfect base for handmade jewelry projects, like macrame bracelets and necklaces.
  • Emergency Kits & Backpacks: Keep a spool of micro cord on hand because you never know when it's going to come in handy.
  • Fishing Line: Reel in any fish up to 100 pounds with a fishing line made of micro cord.
  • Handle Wraps: Use micro cord to wrap the handles of knives, swords, tomahawks, axes and other survival tools.
