The U.S. Military has long favored quick drying, rot-resistant 550 paracord for everyday and survival applications. With a breaking strength of 550 lbs., paracord is dependable for a multitude of practical uses, including bootlaces, shelter construction, animal snares, tourniquets, clothesline, equipment repair and more. It can be taken apart to expose seven inner strands (each rated at 50 lbs. test strength), which are small and tough enough to substitute for fishing line, medical stitching, fabric repair, dental floss and thousands of additional tasks. Our sturdy IAO Belt helps you innovate, adapt and overcome in almost any emergency, because it provides over 40 feet of useful paracord. Our design stands out from competitors ‘ and homemade versions because it features a reinforced inner core. This means you can deploy the paracord and still use the belt! The polymer reinforcement makes the IAO Belt sturdy enough to support holsters and tactical rigs. A heavy-duty, rigger-type steel buckle is rated with a tensile strength of 2,500 lbs. NRA Tactical logo is discreetly sewn on the belt’s inner surface. Note: while the IAO Belt has been tested to support up to 5,000 lbs., it is not intended to support or suspend a human being. Waist sizes: XS (28"-31"), S (32"-35"), M (36"-39"), L (40"-43"), XL (44"-47"). Colors: Black, Khaki. Made in USA.
