550 FireCord is the next evolution in outdoor gear preparedness. 550 parachute cord or "paracord" has been the standard go-to for most cordage needs as it has tons of utility. From zipper pulls and handles to keychains, bracelets and lanyards and as simply as lashing.

Now, imagine if you could also use your paracord as fire tinder...enter 550 FireCord, the fire preparedness solution that will ensure you are Always Prepared!

Fire is paramount to survival and being able to create fire is crucial. People have a tendency to overestimate their ability to create fire under adverse weather conditions such as rain, snow, cold, windy locations or darkness. Humidity, time of year, and altitude are also conditions to consider as well. Likewise, material selection is a key prerequisite to successfully building a sustainable fire. Even then there is no guarantee it can be accomplished in a survival situation.

The most vital component of fire is its ability to provide heat to dry wet clothes and to regulate the body's core temperature as maintaining body temperature is vital for survival. The most common cause of death in the wild is hypothermia. Even in desert scenarios, freezing night temperatures have been known to claim lives.

Aside from the above mentioned physical aspect, fire can offer mental comfort as the light and smoke can be used for signaling rescue and it can be used as a predator and insect deterrent.

Fire will also contribute greatly to food and water preparation. The heat will kill the majority of parasites and bacteria when cooking game, fish, insects and wild edibles. The smoke will dry and preserve food for later. Having a hot meal can also boost the mental state giving you a psychological edge. DID WE MENTION, 550 FireCord is also WATERPROOF!

Simply deploy your 550 FireCord to meet all of your parachute cord needs. When you need the fire tinder simply remove the inner strands, light just like any fire tinder and build your fire. After the inner strands are used the outer shell can still be utilized as before - for lanyards, keychains, zipper pulls or emergency lashing.

How does 550 FireCord differ from other emergency fire starting gear?

550 FireCord:

• ignites easier • burns hotter • lasts longer

• waterproof

This product will revolutionize the outdoor gear industry as well as your use of paracord forever.

Although we have proof of concept and know the product works, we need to scale up in order to increase our production volume.

*** The Paracord is no longer rated at 550 Lbs ***
Your support in funding 550 FireCord will assist us with Manufacturing & Production, Packaging, as well as Sales & Marketing.

Thank You! Your support allows us to revolutionize the survival industry with this NEW and AMAZING, next generation cordage! We are confident that we will far surpass our initial goal and make even more color options available. Thanks for your pledges and spreading the word about 550 FireCord - the new name in Paracord!

About Live Fire Gear LLC

Live Fire Gear LLC was formed out of a mutual respect, work ethic and appreciation for innovative gear between Adam Francis and Roger Fandrich.

The relationship between Roger and Adam began in March of 2011 after Adam received one of Roger's very first survival gear products. Adam was quite impressed with the product and gave it a fair and positive test and evaluation.

Both Roger and Adam stayed in contact and in 2012, Adam received a new product from Roger to review called Live Fire. Live Fire was Roger's latest fire starting invention. After Adam reviewed the product, not only did he become a fan of it, he found himself becoming an advocate of the technology as well.

Eventually Roger and Adam discussed some new ideas and casually brainstormed about expanding into other fire gear products. Although Adam's relationship was initially established as a consultant, some of the different project ideas that were beginning to be developed required more time and focus. Adam and Roger both realized that they made a great team as the synergy of their efforts started to produce great results.

Knowing the two survivalists could revolutionize the survival industry, they quickly found themselves discussing and eventually forming a partnership in Live Fire Gear LLC, established in 2013. 550 FireCord represents the first of many new products currently in different phases of development. With this technology and their joint experience in the outdoor gear development community, Adam and Roger look forward to many more successful endeavors.
