    1. Very Fine Quality Shock cord  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 24th Oct 2022

      I needed the shock cord to do a couple of modifications to my trail maint pack and the quality was excellent as well as the price point! Will definitely order from Litesmith again .

    2. Excellent customer service  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 22nd May 2022

      I wasn't sure if I'd received the correct diameter that I'd ordered, so after a quick phone call Litesmith mailed me a small piece if each of the 3 diameters just to confirm that I'd received the correct product.

      Product received quickly, just what I ordered.

    4. Perfect thickness!  star rating

      I've been looking for reflective bungy cords for my backpack but could not find the perfect thickness. Litesmith had it - plus alot of other items for me! Thanks!

    5. Excellent Quality  star rating

      Posted by Unknown on 18th Dec 2021

      This shock cord came neatly packed in the mail and the first thing I noticed was the vibrant neon orange color. Along with a robust outer sheathing and high-tension elastic, I think this cordage will serve me well on my backpacking adventures.

    6. Good, quality cord…  star rating

      Posted by Petet on 8th Jun 2021

      Nice, consistent and tightly woven sheathing around elastic that seems to have no memory and good snap back. Can’t speak to how it will hold up over time but, based on past experience, it feels like will do well over the long haul. Will definitely buy again.

    7. re-cord old cord  star rating

      Posted by Keith on 2nd Jun 2021

      used this to fix a couple of sagging poles

    8. Seems good!  star rating

      Posted by Anne on 1st Dec 2020

      Used this shock cord to re-string some old tent poles. Worked well, and the cord seems to be of good quality. Only time will tell really.

    9. 1/16 for all the little stuff  star rating

      Posted by John Riddle on 28th Sep 2020

      As described. Makes for great bivy tieouts or silnylon shelter tensioners so there's no sag overnight. Takes a flame well to keep the ends from fraying.

    10. Great for tent pole repair  star rating

      Posted by SRD on 9th Sep 2020

      I ordered this to fix the overstretched, worn out cord in my REI backpacking tent poles. It shipped fast and it was easy to replace the worn out cord with this new cord.
