Viper Equinox is a competitor sold by Campmor and others at much lower price than Kelty. It is also gold color, a little larger at 1/8" diam., has 3M reflective thread with 2 threads per X pattern, 4 Xs per 1.5 inches of cord. It is also braided nylon, model ELW401. It is about twice as reflective as Kelty. Also sold in 50 foot pieces.
Another option is REI's blue,green, and white cord, that is braided, 1/8" diameter, single reflective cord sewn in a spiral dash with about 4 lines per 1.25 inch of cord. It has about the same reflectivity as the Kelty cord, but it also adds a glow in the dark feature that actually works for several minutes after a flashlight hits it. The glow in the dark white cords are a series of 4 threads together with 3 of the sets per inch of cord. Basically, the glow cords are about 75% of what you see on a cross section and the reflective cords are about 5%. This cord is about the same cost as Kelty. One additional advantage is that it is sold by the foot, so you can get a small piece or a really long piece.
As a reflective guy line, it shines brightly with a headlamp or flashlight, and I had no problem seeing it at night. In nighttime pictures of our campsite, the Kelty Triptease Lightline blazed brightly in the camera's flash, and the gold color is easy to see during the day as well (even more so than the green reflective cord from another manufacturer that I also use as guy lines on my tents). I use this in conjunction with Nite Ize small Figure 9 and Nite Ize KnotBone when I'm staking out my tent, and both products work just fine with the Kelty cord.
Can't speak to the abrasion or breaking strength since I haven't misused it enough yet. ;-)

Very nice. Small, strong, very reflective. Hit it with a headlamp or flashlight at night and it shines bright. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Ray Mooney
These are good strong ropes for tent guy lines that have a decent reflective strand built into them. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Randi C.
