My last freebie give away was almost two years ago. Time to spread the love again…
This time it’s some very cool ultralight hanging cord. This stuff is awesome, it’s made of Spectra and so is very strong. It has a breaking strength of 329 kg; which means while I wouldn’t tie it to my climbing harness and attempt a Factor 2 fall, it isn’t going to break when hauling your bags full of food into the trees, no matter how many days worth. It will also stand up pretty well to several games of camp tug-a-war with your new found trail mates.
Unlike most other spectra cords, this one has a flat vs. round profile. This is nice, as if you’ve every hauled a very heavy sack into trees, the thin round-profile of most light spectra will cut into the branch – damaging the tree or worse, sometimes getting stuck.
At Gossamer gear, $25 gets you in the cool club of bear-baggers with your 1.2 oz, 50 ft line. The cord is brand-new as I ordered too many.
You my friends, have a shot at the cool club for free today. The only catch is that if you win, you agree to pay postage.
How do you win? Simply submit a comment on this post and include your email address (so I can contact you if you win…) when you do. I’ll pick a lucky winner at random at 5pm (PST) Monday Sept 19th.
