Vapor Line 8mm ropes are the first 8mm ropes on the market developed from the ground up specifically for the rigors of saddle hunting. Designed to deliver maximum strength, durability, and water resistance in the most compact package, the Vapor Line 8mm Tether packs incredibly small, includes a premium carabiner, and is rigged for single-handed operation out of the package so you can minimize bulk without sacrificing safety.
Vapor line ropes feature a core built from a proprietary blend of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (commonly refereed to as Amsteel) that is pound-for-pound stronger than steel and impervious to water absorption and floats. The exterior is contracted of a tightly wove, high-tenacity, 100% polyester sheath, providing both high UV and abrasion resistance and naturally hydrophobic characteristics.
Vapor line ropes are manufactured in the USA and third-party tested for minimum breaking strength, elongation, diameter, and knotability according to Cordage Institute 1701-07 standards referenced by ASTM 2116 for low stretch and static kernmantle life safety rope.
