    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.

    Hi April, any idea how much "5 days worth of food" weighed? Just curious so I can keep an eye on how much i carry. I use it to hang both my gf's and my food on 3-5 day trips, and haven't had any issues with it. thanks!

    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.

      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.
