Paraline
Gladding became an important military cord supplier during World War II. The product known today as Paraline evolved from Gladding's partnership with the U.S. Defense Department and their stringent standards for parachute cord. Today Gladding manufactures Paraline with a 100% nylon outer sleeving which covers a parallel layered core. The resulting cord has a soft hand and feel, while maintaining extraordinarily high tensile strength. Made in dozens of colors and custom patterns, Paraline is also available in packaged 50' and 100' coils and long-length spools. The strength and durability of this finely-braided, flexible cord continually makes Paraline one of our top sellers.
