    Just be sure it's actually tested. What some call "paracord" is not true 550.

    +1 for Amazon Prime. Along with the 2-day free shipping, you also get access to their huge Kindle library and streaming movie service that rivals Netflix.
    If you're not willing to spend the $99, find a buddy that has it, and mooch off of them. Amazon allows Prime members to grant the free 2-day shipping benefit to anyone they choose.
    You won't get the media stuff, but you will get the shipping, and it's completely legit!

    I've bought cord from a dollarstore that was about twice the diameter of paracord.

    Don't ask me how I know this, but a single length of it will snap on a hammock. Less than 10 seconds with one adult.

    You shouldn't be using paracord for a hammock either. Dynamic loading can way exceed 550 lbs. That's why experienced hangers use dyneema. 1/8 in is 2500 lb break strength.
