Beal Accessory cord is a strong Nylon cord that has multiple uses. Though these are primarily climbing and mountaineering the uses are limitless, from being used to form a bivi through to a washing line.
The quantity is the number of metres, so for instance if you want 6 metres change the quantity to 6.

I bought 2 sizes of cord for different uses. I bought the 3mm cord for strapping gear to my touring pack and for general use. I bought the 6mm for making abseil stations, Prussics etc. great quality, lightweight product.
I know, it's just some cord. But it's good quality and some extra meters of it won't cost much. And there will always be use of it -to mend, to replace, to improve. Or when you need i line for your wet stuff.
This cord appears to be very hard-wearing and durable. Good all-purpose cord for a variety of outdoor activity uses. Great to have in a repair kit.
A great quality cord for numerous applications, light weight and quick drying. Carry in your backpack just in case you need to repair gear, strap kit, dry clothes, fix handles, use as emergency boatlaces, the list is endless. A must have for any adventure.
I bought this 2mm cord to replace much thicker cord I had used previously to hold secure a range of items. The thicker cord had proved too inflexible and so I wanted something that was less bulky both in tying it to me or my rucksack. The thinner cord did just the trick. Unlike most compass cords, I have found the Beal cord does not snag on the zip in my hardshell jacket pockets, which means it will last longer and keep my compass and torch far more secure. Well worth the buy.
This is great general purpose cord. It is nice to work with easy to tie knots with. I used the 4mm cord to replace the guy ropes on an old hike tent to great success.
Excellent all rounder. I bought 2mm and 6mm cord for all the various outdoor needs. Usual tarp erection, guy lines, bag attachments etc. Very handy and definitely up to the task. A good zip attachment for finding pockets with gloves on or in poor weather. I thought the 2mm would be a bit 'weak', but it has proved almost perfect for everything and leaving the 6mm almost redundant. I have used most of it 'rescuing' friends and other club members with broken belts and laces! An absolute must for the regular or serious outdoor enthusiast. Well recommended.
I am a beginner in outdoors rock climbing and I bought this in order to do safe rappels. A french prusik was recommended to me and 2 meters is more than enough for this task. Was even delivered 2,6 meters so I could do two slings! :)
I have done one rappel and it worked perfectly. The cord is easy to use and looks like it could last a long time. Thanks!
I have purchased 3 meters of 6 mm Beal cord mainly to be used as a prusik loop on glacier walking, climbing and for a eventual self-rescue.
By now, for the same thing, I was using a 7 mm cord. I am sure that with my new 6mm I am going to save a little bit of weight, which is very important in climbing.
I am sure that with this new cord the prusik will work better since there will be a bigger difference between the main cord (8mm) and the prusik-loop-cord (6mm).
Although is recommended for light-abseil-tat, I still prefer 7mm cord (security is essential!!)
Facewest is always great; and specially free postage for this small purchases.
This cord is great value for the money.
I recently purchased the 2mm cord to use when camping, for guylines, washing lines, lanyards etc, and I canít fault it yet. The cord is a great bright red colour, which makes finding it easy, and it easily visible around camp. The cord has a great sheath finish to it, compared with other more expensive cords ( the mammut cord for example is very stiff in comparison). Canít fault the length that was sent to me, spot on there.
I can see this cord being extremely useful around camp, but cannot see any practical uses in the climbing environment.
Once again, brilliant service from Facewest, you guys are great !
