    Source for Bright (in day) Glo Cord?

    I've been looking for more glocord, I know AHE has some, but it's black.

    Diy Gear Supply use to carry Blaze Orange Cord, and I've also seen Fluorescent Yellow somewhere.


    Any idea where to find some at a decent price?

    The zpacks.com spectra line is pretty bright yellow. My favorite is Lawson glowire. It is very bright orange by day, and really reflective at night.

    True, but I'm looking specifically for glocord. Something to make tieouts, zipper pulls, etc with that will really pop in the daylight, but also stand out at night.

    to you guys! Thanks!

    I used neon yellow paracord. Used it yesterday in fact and it was so bright it looked like it was under uv while just in regular sunlight. I get it from Mr. Paracord. I guess it depends on if that's too heavy per ft though. I know Dynaglide is a lot lighter and probably just as visible.

    I probably should have looked at what exactly glocord is. Here's some reflective tracer paracord for ~$4 for 25ft. http://www.mrparacord.com/reflective/
