    Reflective Guyouts

    Found a decent price on reflective shock cord and 3/16" "lifeline" as they call it.

    Nice find.

    Why is it though that I've never been able to find shock cord or guyline that's got high visibility in both day and night. Everything I've found is either:
    1. Reflective tracers woven into a black or muted cord (only highly visible at night), or
    2. A bright safety-orange color without reflective tracers (only highly visible during the day).


    Why not a safety orange cord with reflective tracers. At least for those of us who are clumsy and trip over things 24x7

    Close, but not quite what I'm looking for...

    The PMI Niteline is "glow in the dark" instead of reflective. Which means it has to be "charged" with light and then wears out over time (probably before I make my nightly field trip about 3am or so )

    I've got lots of the Kelty Triptease (it used to be my go-to line). The reflective is awesome good! But while its "officially" orange, its such a muted and dull orange that it almost disappears into the background (especially after it gets dirty from just a little use).


    On the other hand, the Gossamer Gear EZC 2 Line might be just what I'm looking for! Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be ordering some soon to give it a try.
