International shipping:

International buyers SHOULD contact us for a shipping quote on more than 300 feet of paracord (you will save money).  International buyers MUST contact us for a shipping quote on more than 700 feet of paracord so that we can discuss the most efficient shipping. We will refund on orders that do not follow the MUST rule.  

  • The 300' rolls (total of 600') are quite compact and two of them can be put into a flat rate padded envelope to keep shipping costs as low as possible.  

  • The 1000' roll can be squeezed into a flat rate box.
