Now I'm disappointed. My first impressions of the thing was that it was heavy and bulky. It weighs over four times as much as my thread, and takes up about 2-3 times more space, depending on how long I'm willing to take wrapping the thing up properly. The included velcro straps are VERY unwieldy and don't like to pack up easy, so after some tries I ended up removing them and stashing them deep into my bag while trying to just use the loops. This usually works okay. Sometimes I can slip the loop over bed posts, etc. and sometimes I can feed the loop past the post and then just feed the line through the loop like I would do for a knot with my linen cord, but sometimes I have to dig into my bag to retrieve the velcro ends to get my line set up properly.
All of this is more disappointing so because the item itself is well made, tough, and durable. It is just functionally and conceptually inferior to what basically amounts to string and maybe some clothespins if your line is too short to double back. It has meant swapping something that took up so little space that I literally had a hard time finding it until I started putting it in a plastic baggy out for something that takes up noticeable space, is confining to use (the elastic on this thing can pull beds out of place), and is plain unwieldy to use.
One shortcoming -- I wish they included some kind of suction cups with these so you can pop them onto the smooth wall of a shower or tub surround. I know suction cups are a little undependable, but maybe if they had the kind of unit that comes with a windshield-mount GPS, for example (with the lever to increase suction hold), they would be more secure.
It comes with the loops attached as pictured, but also has velcro hook and loop tabs, which make it possible to attach this somewhere in just about any location.
I even use it at home now - I have a small urban apartment and it is takes up much less room to store than a drying rack and I can fit it in the shower / tub. Good way to dry gloves and snow gear after shoveling out the car and wet rain coats after a miserable commuting day.
It would be useful it if was a little longer, so I think I am going to buy another to daisy-chain them. By the way, because it is braided, you can actually stick the edges of your clothes into the clothes line without using pins - I don't think I would do this with my silk shirt, but in my camping and backpacking days it would have been very handy.
