The cutting is already done for you.

Rather than waste time measuring out sections of cord spools and then cutting, burning, re-cutting, and re-burning them, grab some Blue Water Pre Cut Accessory Cord, which delivers 50 feet of ultra-strong 3 mm cord. At just 6.7 grams per meter, this lightweight cord is well suited for a multitude of backcountry needs.

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.

Bear Hangs

    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.

    Very stiff

      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.
