Parachute cord, which is now universally known as paracord, is a lightweight nylon rope originally used by paratroopers during World War II. It is now employed as a general purpose utility cord. Hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts have made "survival bracelets" from paracord, which are meant to be unraveled when needed to secure cargo, lash together poles, and fix broken straps and laces. Practical Paracord Projects contains ideas from a number of authors who show just how easy it is to make virtually anything from paracord, providing step-by-step instructions on a variety of useful and fun objects such as a laptop harness, a can koozie, an eyeglass lanyard, a hanging chair, sandals, a leatherman pouch, and others.
