The Imlay Rope Silo
- the modern, effective way to manage your lifeline in canyons. Rope Silos allow you to handle just the part of the rope you need, and keep the rest in the bag. The stiff rim and foam-padded sides make loading the rope a snap, and a couple of tie-in options allow flexibility in technique. A shoulder strap and two handles make it easy to carry or pass along to the young stud in the canyon.
Made in Shanghai, China.
New for 2014: the proportions are slight different -- more Cordura, less mesh -- and the super-stiff rim has been eliminated. While maintaining flotation, the overall bag is less rigid, easier to attach to a pack and generally more friendly. Still allows for a quick one-person stuff.
The Large fits a 200' x 9mm rope or a 300' x 8mm rope. This is the same size that used to be called "Medium".
Dims: 18" tall x 10" diameter (at top)
Weight (Large): 525 gms (18.5 oz)
