    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.00 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.

    BlueWater 5.5mm Titan Dyneema Accessory Cord - Package of 20 ft. is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cordelettes This is great for making a cordelette. It's stronger than 8mm accessory cord, but only 5.5mm. Great length - just tie your triple fisherman's and you're good to go. Other thoughts: I originally thought the stiffness would be a disadvantage, but the stiffness actually makes it easier to untie the anchor. This wouldn't be good for a prusik because it's too stiff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Overall, found this to be lightweight and easily packable. I've just started investing in my own gear and bought this on recommendation from my climbing partner. so far, no complaints.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive Strength, Super Stiff I've been using the regular 6mm+ nylon accessory cord for sometime now, and recently decided to check out the Titan cord. The specs on this cord are absolutely amazing, but do come at a cost. This cord is SUPER stiff. It isn't terrible for knots; actually easier to tie and untie (especially after being under load), but it loves to hold onto twists. Pros: Light Super strong Easy to untie Cons: Very stiff Twists easily Only comes in a 20' pack (30' would be perfect for most anchor uses, I think) In summary, if you're looking specifically for Dyneema cord, or you have something that absolutely needs the added strength, this is a great buy. For a regular anchor you may just consider normal 6mm+ nylon. It's cheaper, a bit more forgiving, and there are studies available online (I can't conclude on the veracity of them) that state that nylon is better as it is considerably more durable.
