4 stars bc of what para cord is. genius stuff. and this product is simply that, no more, no less. it's a length of para cord. a second cousin to duct tape.
Rope! Good for stuff!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Its cheap, its strong, its light and it doesn't stretch much. Great for guy lines, hammock straps or a myriad of other things.
Good pull chord for rappel anchors
This is good parachute chord and it works way good as a pull chord to retrieve rappel anchors.
Use it to guy out tents, make lanyards for tools, hang food or anything you need light, strong cord for. It cheap and easy to find and comes in lots of colors. It is a bit elastic, may need to consider that for some applications.
