    Bouncing rabbit sells decent shockcord. EBay can be hit n miss.

    Why 5m of shock cord?

    I only buy English Braids stuff from a chandler now. I bought some off Ebay that broke down in sunlight, useless.

    English Braids is always reliable. I think I used Everlasto last order, that's lasted on my packs and hasn't frayed.

    Cinch cord for an UQ quilt should be fine with decent quality 2mm, it hasn't got much of a job to do. You can get 2mm in orange, which is obviously lighter, warmer, stronger, better, and allows the insulation to loft more than black cord.

    Happy to pay per metre + postage if you have.
    Ideally 2.5mm to mate with Dutch Hook Worms for tarp tieouts also for top quilt and bug net cinches.

    eBay has plenty of 2.5mm...……..less then £3 for 5m...…..no real hardship if it's poor & you can warn the rest of us.

    One ebay vendor once sent me three pieces knotted together rather than a 5m length. Idiots :banghead:

    I complained and got a replacement. I declined their request to grass on who despatched the initial order.
