Used the rope for just over a year now and love it! Its very easy to handle and tie knots and I definately feel safe using it. The bag it comes with is pretty nice too. The bag has a tarp stiched in and has stiched nylon loops all the way around the outside of it for clipping your entire rack on. I clip my trad rack on it with the rope inside and throw the shoulder loop on for a day of climbing. Great Buy!!
