    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    New England 6mm Accessory Cord - Package of 30 ft. is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Polyester, Light-Duty, Static Rope The description and specs do not reveal that the New England 6mm Accessory Cord is a 100% polyester cord. It has a MBS is 7.3kN. By way of comparison, a 7mm diameter NYLON cord is what is the minimum recommended for cordelettes, anchor runners and Prusik slings. A 7mm nylon cord will typically have a MBS of 10-12kN, and because of its elasticity, it is capable of absorbing more energy in a fall than are the specialized cord materials. Bottom line: Go with good ol' nylon for climbing. This product is fine for hauling, lashing, campsite rigging, etc. It is smooth, supple, knots well, unties easily, and is good looking. It resists water absorption, abrasions, acidic chemical damage and UV damage better than nylon. Just don't use it for anything that puts your body at risk.
