If mankind's greatest invention is the wheel, then our greatest discovery is surely fire. Thousands of years on, it is still very much revered and feared, only nowadays we have many more means with which to control and create it. In terms of bushcraft, to be able to utilise fire to suit our needs whilst we are immersed within nature is an invaluable skill to add to our armoury.
In fact, our relationship with fire has got to the point where we often take our ability to create it for granted. This complacency can prove to be extremely costly when out in the wild. For example, how can we be sure that, when faced with adverse weather conditions, we will be able to create fire at the strike of a match?
With military standard US 550 Firecord, you can ensure that you are not a victim of poor preparation when it comes to your next bushcraft adventure. A brilliantly designed fire lighting tinder, sourced straight from US military manufacturers, US 550 Firecord is soon to become the prerequisite accessory for all bushcraft enthusiasts.
Military Standard US 550 Firecord
Having the suitable materials with you is absolutely crucial if you are serious about creating a sustainable fire. The nature of the wilderness means there is never a guarantee that you'll be able to start one, but if you are sufficiently equipped, you will be giving yourself a superior advantage to do so. And that is where US 550 Firecord comes in.
Manufactured to military standard, it is essentially a combination of 550 Paracord and Live Fire Tinder. Just think of all the benefits you would get from swapping your traditional paracord for US 550 Firecord - thanks to its innovative technology it is an investment that will enhance any bushcraft experience.
So what is different about the 550 Fire Cord when compared to conventional paracord?
Fire Cord has the same tensile strength as U.S 550 Paracord so it may be used in exactly the same way, for lashing, trapping, shelter building ad general survival tasks - the only difference being the inner strand which is constructed from a flammable material for starting fires. Simply remove a small section of this integral inner braid to use when needing to light a fire. The inner tinder is fully waterproof and will light with a single spark, burning slowly and reliably. A small section of firecord is easily stored in survival kits, or may be worn such as in survival bracelets or as knife lanyards. Fire Cord is just a great way of keeping vital fire lighting components with you all times without taking up extra space. Fire Cord is dual use without any compromise.
