I bought this rope as an emergency rope.  Extremely strong for its' size being made from Dyneema with a nylon cover sheath. I bought a color of solid black.


- high strength, 3100Lbs break

- low stretch and low settle.

- light weight.

- very durable core.

- Highly cut resistant.



- stiff



- wish it was sold as a 50ft package rather than the 20ft package.

- cover is nylon so it can chafe (easier than the core).


I bought a second and have woven one into a lifting sling (strength theoretically = 12400lbs).


Yes, I do recommend and would buy again from REI.
