Intended for high-load applications that normally call for a lifeline but also require a rope that floats, this rescue rope is compatible with prusik hitches, ascenders, pulleys, and other rescue hardware. Its core is polyolefin covered with a tough, abrasion-resistant nylon sheath. Double braided with a polypropylene core contained within an abrasion-resistant nylon jacket, this is one tough rope — not a throw line but a rescue lifeline.
Note: If rope is under extreme load, sheath may slip exposing core.
