    1. Just what I wanted  star rating

      Awesome that Litesmith will sell this to you by the foot so I don't have to buy a whole butt-load of this stuff if all I wanted was a couple feet!

      I already had a Nitecore NU25. I fashioned my own ultralight band out of a couple feet of this stuff and a mini cordlock. Like $2 worth of materials!

      Redid the cord for my tent poles with a couple colors, this worked great. Stoked on getting a change from the boring white/black standard options!

      I bought this cord to use as elastic continuous loop for covid masks. It is perfect. The customer service was wonderful, I made a mistake and ordered the wrong size, but Litesmith caught it and called me!
      My package arrived in just a few days.

    7. It’s reflective, it’s stretchy, what’s not to like!  star rating

      Great colors and reflective too! I wanted to find shock cord in my kids favorite colors to help ID their kit as well as help them lighten their packs a bit. This cord is thin but strong enough to do the job. Great stuff!

    8. Worked Great!  star rating

      Placed an order for a few myog projects (1.6 and 2 mm diameters) - they worked great! The cord is firm and durable, a little bit stretchy as you expect from shock cord, but it doesn't deform or stretch out permanently. Also, both diameters were compatible with the mini cord locks sold on this site, which was convenient.

      I bought this shockcord for a daypack I made for my wife. She wanted a Bahama blue X-Pac pack which I put daisy chains on. I used the blue reflective shockcord in the daisy chains to give her some bling, but also from a practical perspective to have additional capacity for raingear, hiking poles, etc., and visibility at night. The shockcord is essentially shockcord, same functionality. The difference is the tracers which light up very well from a headlamp. So plenty of pack applications for this shockcord.

      I'd say it would also work very well for an underquilt suspension and making your hammock camp more visible/easy to locate at night.
