I was looking at the color selections on ParacordPlanet website and wondered why they would preface some of the color names with "F.S" such as "F.S. Navy Blue". So, I emailed them and asked. They kindly replied that "F.S." stood for "Federal Standard". I don't think that it really means anything, and can be safely ignored. But if you have been loosing sleep at night over this, now you know. File this under trivia information.:confused:

I am pretty sure it is just in reference to the color, and not anything actually meaningful. There are other shades of Navy Paracord though. Atwood Navy is a much darker color, I call it Dark Navy, because I am not very creative : )

I was thinking full of well you know the last word for the "S". LOL! I'm joking.

F.S. stands for Federal Standard. It means it meets a specification the govt. has set for that color for govt use.
I was close with my answer. :D
