At long last, a prusik line that will last. 8mm Armor-Prus from Donaghys features a unique cover blend of Technora and polyester. The cover acts like armor over a core of light weight Spectra 900/aramid fiber. The sewn eyes are stitched by the rope experts at Rope Logic.

"Since first sampling the product in New Zealand three years ago, Armor Prus has become an important part of our climbing system. As a climbing prusik, the cord performs brilliantly, when tied correctly it is reliable and runs well on modern double braid climbing lines. As it has a breaking strength exceeding 22kN, the 8mm Armor Prus is perfect to splice as a footlock prusik or as a backup link in SRT systems. The only problem with Armor Prus is that other climbers always want to 'borrow' some -- piss off, get your own!" -- Grant Cody, Australian Champion Tree Climber.
