I purchased the 6mm accessory chord to make some prussics. I purchased 6m to make a variety of sizes and found it easy to cut to size and finish the ends to prevent fraying. It is easy to tie and has not slipped at all after my initial fisherman's was tied. I have used it a number of times and it suits my requirements, gripping the rope when I have tested it and being easy to hold loose to allow the abseil. I would recommend it as a purchase for anyone abseiling and at this price it is a must have safety item.

Fantastic cord, I used mine with a Snugpak poncho to attach it to the trees as an emergency shelterI can say it worked a dream I would highly recommended it

I bought 2 x 2m lengths of 6 mm for prussiks, it grips the rope well, and keeps in the knot I tied it to make a loop. A recommendation would be to be able to ask for it cut to specific lengths, as I don't have the equipment or know how to cut the excess off and I feel it's a waste to do so.

I purchased the 6mm cord after having to abandon a sling on an emergency abseil off a route. Made into a long loop and stashed in the rucksack along with a mallion ready for the next emergency. A perfect choice, lightweight and inexpensive

I purchased the 6mm accessory chord to make prussic loops like everyone else. Got it for self rescue while ski touring. Never had to rescue myself or friends but practice with it, I also found it holds well. I did order it cut to length but they made a mistake and didn't, but told me how to do it and its very easy with a sharp knife and a lighter/

Ordered 20m of 2mm cord, with two main uses in mind. 1 10m length for keeping in the top of my pack when mountaineering to use for anything really - replacement guy lines, bootlaces, etc. The extra length has been used for various things including a belt for my chalkbag, and tethering my GoPro to helmets and other things, which it does well as it is thin enough to tie onto the GoPro, but strong at the same time. At the price it's an excellent investment as it could easily get you out of a sticky situation!

I purchased several different sizes of this cord and it's great. I've used the 2mm as a tether for my GoPro, 4mm for lashing stuff to the top of my rucksack, 6mm for prusiks of which I've several in different lengths. I also have a 7m length of 6mm for anything. It's coils up into a neat bundle, so it sits neatly on the back of my rack and is ready to use. Plus it only weights 23g/mtr so I'm quite happy to take it along. I found the information on the Facewest site excellent and as usual the service and delivery was excellent.

I've purchased this in various widths for falconry uses, mostly leashes and lure lines. It's perfect for several reasons: The knots hold well; it's easy to clean; it's easy to melt the ends to stay safe and tidy; high breaking tolerances make it very safe; it doesn't get tangled; it's difficult for the birds to pick at; it withstands the weather; it's lightweight. So it has everything I need and is very affordable. Thanks for the good service and quick delivery, too.

I've been using the 2mm cord for many trips, and it still looks good as new. I use it for pitching a rainfly, and as a washing line/gear suspension for underneath the fly. It's worked very well, and it's the kind of cord that you can tie knots with very easily, and not worry about being able to untie them once you're done. I consider it very lightweight for it's strength, and when it gets wet it seems to dry much quicker than paracord.
