Historically associated with airborne units, paracord is used by military units in almost any situation where light cordage is needed. Typical uses include attaching equipment to harnesses, as dummy cords to avoid losing small or important equipment, tying up rucksacks, securing camo nets to trees or vehicles, etc. Paracord can also be used as a pacecounter to estimate ground covered by foot. The yarns of the core, commonly referred as the guts, can also be removed when string is needed, for sewing to fishing. The nylon shell is often used alone without the core yarn, when a thinner cord is needed, such as a bootlace.
