    Kelty TripTease LightLine is 50 ft. of reflective 3M Scotchlite yarns with a gold color that really stands out in the dark. $14.95 at Campmor.com

    Have used this for years as a tie out on my tarps.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    Anyone ever notice any loss of reflectivity on areas of these cords that may have worn a bit over time?

    I use the Nite-Ize as well.

    I have it for my tarp ridge line and tie outs. Prusik's are hard to slide on this, but it works none the less.

    Good Stuff for the Money.

    it looks like the same material as the reflective material on my M/C riding gear

    & YES it deteriorates/looses it's reflectiveness, over time

    The black stuff at Lawson looks like it would be stealthy in daytime... anything else more stealthy during the day, but good reflection at night?

    This is what I'm using right now, but it's on the stretchy side.

    The green Nite Ize mentioned earlier blends right in during the day, but is amazingly reflective at night!

    What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other travel. Travel a thousand miles by train and you are a brute; pedal five hundred on a bicycle and you remain basically a bourgeois; paddle a hundred in a canoe and you are already a child of nature.

    I have Kelty Trip Tease, Nite Ize, and Sea to Summit brands of reflective cord. They all work great but none are particularly inexpensive. As mentioned above, the Nite Ize set with the four tarp lines and four Figure Nines is a great deal. I don't use the Figure Nines on the tie-out lines as intended, but use them on my two-piece tarp ridge lines.

    Be aware the Kelty Trip Tease comes in two diameters. I use the big stuff for pull loops on my stakes and the smaller stuff for tie-outs.

    I love reflective cord! I bought some plastic zipper pull parts and use the reflective cord with them to make little loops for my flashlights, pack zippers, etc.

    Take it easy,

    I can't find the thread that swoody126 mentioned about bike reflectors. I did find these on a google search. I really wouldn't need 36 of them but it comes out to about $.45 each. Makes me wonder how well they would work with the lash-it I already have.
