Likes: Having extra utility cord really comes in handy for all kinds of things. I use it to extend the guy out lines on a hammock tarp, and it works great for that. I imagine it could be used for just about anything that would require lightweight paracord or extra guy line, just not anything too heavy.
The reflective cord is fairly easy to see when a light is shined onto it. I like this feature. Tensioner rings are easy and quick to adjust and weigh almost nothing.
Dislikes: Overpriced for cord and 4 rings. Really, I guess when MSR puts their name on something, it is not going to be cheap. Having said that, I'm glad I waited until it was on sale. Overall happy with the purchase, but gave it 4 stars because of the price. They could also throw in a few more tensioner rings.
Likes: This is a very high quality cord that I am using now for guy lines attached to my recently acquired Marmot tent. I like the red color of it, because in addition to being reflective at night, it's also highly visible during the day.
Likes: As expected, helped with trip hazardous in low light times.
Likes: Works as advertised. Happy with purchase.
