The standard 550 cord has been a popular choice for many due to the versatility and strength of the inner nylon strands and outer cord sheath.
Hybrid Kevlar® and Hybrid Spectra® cord is also very popular due to the strength to weight ratio; however these Hybrid Cords normally contain a
single or double inner braided cord making it less versatile than the multiple strands of nylon found in 550 Paracord. This new product provides the best of both cords making it the perfect choice for SERE.
Our SERE Cord Hybrid Kevlar® 1505 has six inner strands; each strand has an untested tensile strength of 200lb (6 x 200 = 1200lb). The outer sheath has an untested tensile strength of 305lb. Total untested tensile strength = 1505lb Each inner Kevlar® strand is a braid of 3 strands. If required they can be easily separated by twisting clockwise. Once separated you have 18 strands each with a tensile strength of 66.6lb! To mark the SERE Cord out from the other cords we will initially produce the SERE Cord in three distinctive outer sheath colours:
Coyote Brown / Black Fleck
Rescue Orange / Black Fleck
Olive Green / Black Fleck
Black and Olive Green available exclusively via HettyKat
