Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tag line I am a firefighter in Austin, TX. I use this line as my safety tag line while searching structure fires. One end is clipped to my airpack and the other to my search partner. The glowing line is great in near zero lighting conditions. Just hit it with your light before you enter. Great utility cord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gear to have This cordelette is a great product. Out of the package it was very nimble and easy to work with. It is great for anchor systems, though I wish it came a little bit longer, hence only a 4 star rating. Is useful on two point anchors but too short for three point anchor system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Respectible I used the Cordelette to rig a mountaineering sled. It's not rigid but nicely flexible and can accommodate any knot. The mantle is not too slick and it has enough bite to hold onto any friction knot. But it does not glow in the dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 7mm cord I used mine to make a Purcell prussik. Cut in half it's the right size. It can then be untied in a 'needy' situation. Good to find in low light too. Since you get 2 PAS (aka Purcell Prussiks) it's a good deal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from short and does not knot well This line is too short for a 3 point anchor. As a utility cord it is too stiff for some knots. Slide and grip knots will not hold at all and other common knots may not cinch down properly. It does not glow enough to be noticeable unless it is really dark.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to see a good product. Rope is very easy to tie and with multiple uses. Familiar and work with the brand.

Would this rope be suitable as a safety line for creek crossings?

Asked by: DavidHasToCrossAFewCreeks
This rope is definitely strong enough, but is much too short for any wide stream crossings.
