Rating: rated 3.5 of 5 stars

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.

Plusses

  • high strength, 3100Lbs break
  • low stretch and low settle
  • light weight
  • very durable core
  • Highly cut resistant

50/50s

  • stiff

 Cons

  • 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.
