A Great Alternative to Paracord for the Weight Conscious

With a breaking strength of 100kg and weighing in at just 3.2g per meter, Edelrid's classic Multicord SP 2.5mm is strong and tough enough for most tasks yet competitively light-weight. Multicord SP is ideal for attaching gear to packs, hanging mosquito nets from tarps, making essential repairs, lowering packs during tricky descents and everything else that cordage is used for (except climbing !!).

Scramble recommend Dyneema 1.5mm cord for guy lines; it's stronger, lighter and has practically zero elongation, but what the Multicord SP has over the Dyneema cord is that it's much easier to work with, more abrasion resistant (due to its nylon outer) and far better for knotting. Ultimately it's a more versatile, all-round cord and very useful to have in your pack, especially when undertaking long distance treks. 

Scramble Editor's Note: "Edelrid's Multicord continues to impress. On the recent kit test it bailed me out for broken laces, replaced cord on my trail gaiters and was able to replace the hood cinch cord on my sleeping bag which came free. It's slightly stiff and wiry, extremely durable and strong and very easy to work with for repairs in the field. Being just 2.5mm it also seems to fit through most openings. Outstanding stuff - less bulky and more versatile than paracord".
