Perfect for Hammock Tarps!
BlueWater Accessory Cord (NiteLine) is great for tarps/rain flys. It is a static line, unlike paracord which has stretch in it. I use BlueWater Accessory Cord (NiteLine) for almost anything and it always outperforms even the cutting edge stuff like Dyneema, etc.
Not as tough as I'd thought
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Used this for a bear hang and the cord snapped under the weight of 5 days worth of food. I had only used it a couple of times and the wear was extremely minimal. I don't know how it could've snapped when it didn't catch on anything.
Tough/heavy, but mostly tough
This is a stiff, tough cord. I picked it up primarily to pitch a tarp shelter and use for bear hangs. It' a bit overkill for those purposes, but I wanted a little bot of overkill.
A little overkill at 3mm for a bear hang, but very study and serves multiple uses. I wish BC had it in a 2mm as well.
Even for a 3mm cord, this thing is stiff. It does the job to act as extra cord for various needs at a cheap price.
However, I recommend the softer hand of a 3mm PMI cord (not sold by Backcountry).
For the ultimate utility cord (at a heftier price), the 2mm Dyneema reflective cord by Exped is the best and lightest and strongest! It is the ultimate tent guyline.
