    Maple leaf ropes.com

    You can spec a rope however you want. And spec bridles if you want . Their premium Kerr is good. But you can get same rope without the urethane coating

    Some people may scoff at it, but I've had good luck with using tekton tools. most of their manuafacturing is taiwan, with a small percentage made in the U.S. and they are a michigan company.

    also, check out Capri tools. They seem to be a really solid " in the middle" quality tool brand.

    The newer craftsman ratchets are pretty bad. The pawls wear out ultra-fast and the designs lend themselves to lots of busted knuckles.

    It isn't a bad option to shop eBay for used snap on and mac sets. The pricing will usually land you halfway between mac and harbor freight.

    That is a tow strap, not a kerr. Be great if used accordingly. I.e. After somebody else pulls you out using their gear put your gear on so they can pull you home

    A good bag for gear is a small mesh gym bag. Or a couple of them. The mesh lets things dry if tossed in wet, and the small size lets you store them easy. Keeps things organized. And toss a light pair of gloves in bag




    I know a bunch of things not to do, but the principal of a Kerr illustrated
