The 1 mm polyester cord works wonderfully, and I've been unable to find the exact same thing elsewhere, but there were 2 issues. 1) I purchased 2 lots of the cord, and instead of one piece of cord, double the length like before, I received 2 separate lengths of cord, which means that I will have 2 short lengths that will go to waist. 2) They arrived packaged by being folded over with a zip tie holding the hank together which makes it very difficult to get apart without cutting the zip tie, and with the slightest slip, the cord as well which is what happened to me when cutting the first zip tie off. Then, instead of having 1 - 100 foot length, I wound up with 3 pieces, all of different lengths. When I ordered the cord years ago, it was wound around a piece of cardboard, which kept it clean, secure and tangle free as it was used up. I understand that the new way may save you a little time when filling the order, but it's not nearly as good a method as you used to use.
It has been 14 days since you let me know that these items are on the way. USPS has not updated its tracking since Oct 2. I have ordered similar products elsewhere to ensure that I have them in time for a hike that I am starting tomorrow.
