Live Fire 550 Firecord 25ft Orange
550 FireCord is the next evolution in outdoor gear preparedness. 550 parachute cord or “paracord”, has been the standard go-to for most cordage needs as it has tons of utility. From zipper pulls and handles to keychains, bracelets and lanyards and as simply as lashing.
Fire tinder added as the 8th inner strand to standard 550 nylon paracord. The 8th strand is colour coded, waterproof, and is easy to ignite. When you need the fire tinder, remove the inner strands, light just like any fire tinder and build your fire. After the inner strands are used, the outer shell can be reused like before, for lanyards, keychains, zipper pulls, or emergency lashing. 25 ft. length.

When you get right down to it, this stuff works.By: DPat on 25 April 2019It's 7 strand nylon, it's bright orange, it looks like paracord, it works like paracord. There is a difference, however... it has an eighth strand and it's red and flammable. So how does it work? After pulling about 3 inches of the red fire cord out I fluffed it up a bit and tested it with a Ferro rod, it took me 3 strikes to ignite (that could be my technique to blame) but when lit it burned for a good 12 seconds. Enough for me to get a fire going with the right tinder. Of course, using more of the fire cord will burn longer. Overall I'm pleased with the results. The ends can be melted just like normal 550 paracord and the few quick deploy bracelets I've made do look rather striking in orange:)
