Japanese Manufacturer you should know:TIGER Paracord


This is Ozaki from the ApparelX News editing department.

We’re excited to announce that we’ve added TIGER’s renowned paracord products to ApparelX!

Paracord is a versatile material used in various applications, from outdoor and survival gear to fashion items.

In this edition, we’ll delve into the world of paracord, exploring its uses and introducing TIGER’s exceptional products!

About Paracord

Paracord, originally designed for suspending parachutes, is formally known as parachute cord.

Developed for military use, it is exceptionally sturdy. Typically, with a thickness of 4mm, it can withstand approximately 250kg of weight.

Moreover, besides its direct use, it has seven inner strands that can be extracted, offering a distinctive feature. These inner threads can be repurposed as fishing lines or sewing threads.

Given these features, paracord finds a wide range of applications, from outdoor activities like camping and climbing to disaster situations and everyday life

The Applications of Paracord

The paracord has a variety of applications, including but not limited to:

  • Supplementary rope during tent setup
  • Clothesline during camping
  • Pet leash
  • Fishing line, sewing thread (when inner strands are extracted)
  • Bracelets and keychains
  • Belts, shoelaces, and other apparel uses

In addition to these, there are numerous other applications, and individuals may come up with new uses, showcasing the product’s vast potential.

As a fashion item:
While I mentioned apparel uses as one of the applications, it has become increasingly popular among apparel manufacturers. It is frequently seen in outdoor bags as handles or decorations, used as decorative elements on mountain parkas, and is prevalent in outdoor products.

On the other hand, it’s not limited to outdoor wear; combining it with a cord lock as shoelaces for sneakers can create a unique atmosphere. Moreover, it can be used with cargo pants and military-style items, aligning with the trend in recent seasons.

In the past few years, practicality has become a crucial element in outdoor-style apparel, and I believe the use of paracord in apparel applications will continue to grow!
