Vortex SamsonDry 12.7mm
Full-bodied, 12.7mm premium 24-strand climbing rope with SamsonDry Hyrdophobic treatment.
SamsonDry is a hydrophobic treatment that makes this rope shed water. If you work in the rain, you know how much rope can soak up water, getting heavier and more difficult to handle. SamsonDry cuts the water uptake dramatically, meaning your ropes behave more consistently regardless of the conditions. Samson Dry Technology coating reduces water absorption from 45% of original rope weight (without coating) to 2% with coating.
Vortex is the largest of the premium V-Series double-braid ropes from Samson. Vortex has excellent hand, knotability, and strength. For climbers who prefer a full 1/2" (12.7mm) climbing rope, Vortex is the rope of choice.
