Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid webbing This webbing is great for slacklining and extending toprope anchors closer to the edge. However, it should never be used to run a toprope anchor over the edge. Weighted webbing cuts like butter over a sharp edge, and this webbing is less abrasion resistant than the coarser military spec webbing (hence the $.02 difference). Static rope should always be used to handle an edge, but if you insist on using only webbing for your anchor, use military spec. It has the same breaking strength and won't cut as easily on an edge. Another great use for this webbing is as a rope protector. Cut a 4ft section and slide your static rope through the inside of the webbing. Works great, and is about $9 cheaper than the Spiroll Rope Protector.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Slack Line Period I bought 100ft. of this webbing to use for a longer slack line. It's awesome! The webbing is smooth on your feet and is super durable. I've also used the 1in. webbing for years climbing. Perfect for building anchors and re-slinging old worn out fixed anchors. If you're looking for a solid piece of webbing for anything from slack line to climbing, this is your stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Slacklining I used this tubular webbing for slack-lining and it cant get any better. It is very durable but pretty light weight. The only con is that it will streach a little in the beginning only because it is new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I climb at least once a week out at our local parks and this stuff is great for makeing anchors. I love the color options and the silky feel. It is much better than the stuff the stores in town carry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Webbing This stuff is great for slacklining. It feels great under your feet and is $.02 cheaper than Mil-spec webbing. I haven't used it for climbing but I'm sure it would work really well for anchors as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Webbing Around! In my opinion this is the best webbing around. It is stronger than the military grade stuff,it is .02/ft cheaper, and it is smooth to the touch. Next time I need webbing I'm buying more of this stuff.

Asked by: ericfalls
yes that means it is .36 per foot, and all you need to do is go into the store and tell them how much you want and they will cut it for you.

Are these machine washable? I got mine covered in tree sap

Asked by: Js29098
REIservice is wonderful, but I believe a simple word substitution could be detrimental. Climbing ropes, also nylon, should not be washed with a detergent. Mild soap is different from a mild detergent. Detergent and soap is different, and detergents can harm climbing ropes. I think we are trying to say the same thing, but terminology is important. Use the same care methods with webbing as with climbing ropes.  Long story short, not detergent. Soap. Mild soap. And hand wash. No machines. If you want more info, look up cleaning climbing ropes, and do that with webbing.
