O-Kayyy, are you commenting on the unreliability of color names? Are those 2 different ropes? It's probably just the light, but the left one seems a hair more orangey than the right one.

interesting fact, there is a military designation for Paracord, and there is a difference to the commercial made products, its a small difference, but of course the real military stuff is better made.

as seen here:
Recommendation? MIL-C-5040H Type III

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave

This is a all clever ruse so when they find the vermilion paracord, no one will suspect.

I feel I should clarify here. It isn't claiming to be milspec, so it's not bogus in that sense. There are ones which claim to be and aren't.
