50 Feet 1.2 mm Z-Line Slick Cord
This cord was my favorite for bear bag hangs on a recent thru-hike of the PCT. I tried a number of types of cord, braided, sheathed, and woven cord. I recall my first hang with the slick cord…there’s no better or more simple explanation than to say the whole experience was very slick! I finished the hike using this cord that out performed all the others.
This cord is made of solid braided 100% UHMWPE fiber with no sheathe. It is smooth and slick which allows it to slide over branches easier. This cord is excellent for fixed length guy-lines, or bear bagging only if you are careful.
The slick line is not as bright and doesn't grip as well as the sheathed Z-Line, but it is stronger by weight.

50 ft., 1.2mm, Z-line slick cord
This cord was my favorite for bear bag hangs on a recent thru-hike of the PCT. I tried many types of cord for this purpose, while looking for an ultra light rig, that would do the job. I tried a number of types, braided, sheathed, and woven cord. I recall my first hang with the slick cord…there’s no better or more simple explanation than to say the whole experience was very slick! I finished the hike using this cord that out performed all the others.
I thought it was fine. wife thought it was too thin, don't think she like trying to lift bear bag with such a thin line, esp since we were carrying initially 7 days worth of food for two. might get her to use a stick or stake to handle the line in the future.
Works as specified
This cord works well for hanging food bag. Only complaint is it is so thin that a heavy food bag creates enough pressure that the cord hurts my hands, and care must be taken to allow no slippage, as this could possibly result in the cord cutting into the skin! Super strong cord that slides easily over branch.
Walking the Line
See what I did there? Z line? Walk the line? Sorry anyway. My overall experience was amazing. I LOVE this product. Still kinda new to backpacking. Only 3 trips under my belt and still trying to get really good gear for my tiny budget. I would highly recommend this product and your company to anybody. Keep it up. Love it all
Worked as advertised
Very slick. Worked great for a bear line. It does tangle easily so take your time in winding it. It doesn’t take up any space and is incredibly light. Great product.
