What type of rope for tie downs? [R]

1 year agoStantheman822 posted submission on camping.

I think I read here a while back that there is a specific type of firm rope that is best for staking down a tent/fly/tarp. I am currently just using paracord but if I recall the conversation correctly that is not ideal as it is too stretchy, and there is a non stretch rope type that should be used instead.

Can anyone give me the name of the rope and a quick run down of why it is better suited for this purpose than paracord?

This is what I use for tie downs on my hammock fly. Nite Ize Reflective cord.

I suggest this because it’s lighter. It’s reflective. It grips my titanium Shepard’s hooks great, price was ok and Works great with the sliding adjusters built in my rain fly. Also works great with these dohickys:

Also most paracord I can find local is shit. The tough-grid brand paracord I get off Amazon tho seems pretty legit tho and I use a 50’ section of that for a bear bag.

New to camping - should I get 2-4 pieces of 50ft or 1-2 pieces of 100ft 550 Paracord? [R]

Putting my gear together, and educating myself on the various uses of paracord. From experience, what do you guys recommend?

I like to keep a long (25'+) piece for a ridgeline and about 6-8 6' pieces for tarp tie-outs. I'll sometimes use thinner reflective cord for the corner tie-outs, mostly if I'm in a group setting so people can see the cord and not trip over them. For backpacking I would only use the thinner cord, as paracord is a bit on the heavy side especially if you are carrying 50+ feet of it.

This is the thinner cord I generally use

Reflective Cord for Tarp Ridgeline and Guylines [R]

Does anyone have a recommendation for a reflective cord to use for the ridgeline and guylines of my tarp?

I use Nite Ize Reflective Cord right now, but the way that it is made it basically acts as a saw when you pull it through a pullout on the tarp or slide a prussic knot on it.

Yah, I warn about the Nite Ize RR-04-50 Reflective Cord, then saw you were likely talking about the same stuff. It is reflective, but the reflect material makes the rope course.

LPT: While camping, use glowsticks to illuminate tent ropes in the dark [R]

Next time you go camping, pickup a pack of glowsticks and some tape from the cheap shop. Then once you've setup all your tents, tape some glowsticks along each tent ropes.

That way they get seen in the dark, and no one will trip over them.

Or spend the same amount of cash, one time, for some spectra line and use it to straight up replace whatever tent ropes you have been using. It has those super-reflective fibers in it that light up runners in the dark. Any bit of light shining at the ropes will have your tent lines winking back at you.

Do they even sell tents without these type of guy lines anymore? I buy backpacking tents from REI and all of my tents have come with such lines.

Or are you the type who wanders around in the dark without a light source (bad, do not do this!)?

Update Edit: this stuff @ $6

The Yukon Rainfly is Back on Woot. This time for only $16.99 [R]

I used this so I wouldn't trip on my lines if I got up in the middle of the night to pee:

Does zing-it or lash-it have reflective options? If not, I'm likely going with 2.44mm Nite Ize reflective cord.
