Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh. I'm kind of new to outdoor climbing (only seconding at the moment), and I wanted to get a couple of Prusiks for rappel backup, and I knew they'd be handy for other purposes down the line. I agree with the other poster about a larg portion of the cord being unusable (and if not, certainly awkward) because of the huge knot and sewn portion. It definitely makes it secure, but less than ideal. In any event, my bro (experienced climber) took out the sewn portion and the weird knot and made the more common knot and we also trimmed them a bit. This seems more practical. Anyway, they're not bad for what they are, but you might find a more useful item elsewhere.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best I purchased these so that I could ascend a rope in a pinch. They are too thick (my fault should have read better) and don't really work for what I wonted them for. I have made my own instead of using then and like the home made version better. I didn't return them as I was thinking I can use them for other things and have not as of yet. I would recommend making your own and passing on these. I can not say they are poor quality they just are not good for what they are intended for. Use your own judgment when ordering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from meh This is soft, bites the rope nicely. But the sewn/knot portion of this is too big, making awkward rap backups and prusiks hard to situate. Yes you can work around it, but for something designed for this exact purpose I shouldn't have to. Get some 6mm accessory cord and tie the knots yourself, or go with the Sterling Hollow Block. It has a much lower profile and is easier to use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for rappel backup As many other reviewers have said, these work ok for backing up a rappel, but due to the large knot and the long sewn tails with the plastic covering, a good chunk of the loop is practically unusable, or at least is very awkward to use. You're probably better off purchasing a length of accessory cord and tying it into a prusik loop yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Prusik cord There are other ways to get the same function, but these cords are perfect for backing up a repel or adding extra protection when backing off a climb. I'm not sure there are many ways to use these cords other then as a prusik. I find the longer blue cord a little bit more useful then the shorter red cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practical Great for lazy people like myself who want someone else to prepare quality Prusik cords. I have brought them summiting Baker and Rainier. I thankfully didn't actually need to use them, but I was confident they would do the job if needed.
