I designed Compact Survival Cord to allow you to carry a large quantity of high strength cordage in a package that is small enough for your pocket, and fast to deploy when you need it.
Mini Technora Specs:
- 25' x 600lb Braided Technora
- 2 3/8" x 5/8"
- 22 Grams
Compared to traditional 550 Paracord, CSC is significantly smaller and lighter - while still being strong enough to count on in an emergency. This is a picture of 25' of Paracord, compared to the CSC Micro, Mini, and Small.
The Mini Technora contains 25 feet of Technora line, which can hold 600lbs, yet is small enough to fit in the pocket of a pair of jeans or in a Maxpedition gear pouch:
Technora is 8x stronger than steel by weight, maintains strength up to 800 degrees, and is totally resistant to acids, alkalis, and seawater. Basically, Technora line is Kevlar on steroids.
550 Paracord next to 600lb Technora and 200lb Kevlar:
The main benefit of Terchnora 600 is that it is stronger and more durable than standard 550 Paracord, at less than half the diameter.
This small diameter allows you to carry significantly more Technora than paracord. Here's 25' of 550 paracord, vs 25' of 600lb Technora, with a Zippo for scale:
In addition to being strong and compact, Technora line is also extremely heat resistant, allowing it to be used as a friction saw for cutting through flex cuff handcuffs and PVC pipe. This piece of 1.5" PVC pipe was sawed through in about 30 seconds.
