Reflective Ironwire

Sale price$22.75 USD

Length: 50'

Our Reflective Ironwire is currently sold out due to high interest and limited production capacity (this cord is built in small batches by our partners at Lawson). We expect our next batch in January.

World's Highest Performance Guyline

Overkill perhaps, but for the gear geeks who want the best, our Reflective Ironwire uses Dyneema® fibers in both the core and sheath to become the toughest and lowest stretch guyline available. Like our tents, it maximizes function and durability for the weight.


Reflective Ironwire has a pure Dyneema® core which gives a breaking strength of 650 lbs – remarkable for a 2.0 mm line. A few strands could lift your car.

While other Dyneema® core lines exist, ours goes a step further and also weaves Dyneema® fibers into the sheath for unparalleled abrasion resistance. A pure Dyneema® sheath would be too slick to hold knots well and wouldn’t melt nicely to finish the ends, so our sheath uses a crafted blend of Dyneema® and polyester for the ideal balance between durability and feel.

Reflective Ironwire line is craft made in the USA by Lawson Equipment. It is equivalent to their regular Ironwire cord, except we have added a 3M Scotchlite Reflective reflective tracer for night time visibility – key for a tent application.


The Dyneema® fibers combined with a tight weave make this line ultra low stretch, which let's your shelter stand sturdier in the face of windy conditions.

Regular guyline typically stretch about 10% under a load which allows your tent to deflect under high winds and snow loads. This line reduces that 10x to about 1% stretch, which largely eliminates stretch for a more resolute shelter in harsh weather. While often overkill, we recommend this line as an upgrade when camping where high winds or snow loads are a factor.

Both the Dyneema® and polyester fibers also shun water, which reduces water weight gain and speeds up drying.


High Strength

650 lbs from Dyneema® parallel strand core and partial Dyneema® sheath.

Abrasion Resistant

2.0 mm (but acts like a 2.5 - 2.8 mm line because it doesn't stretch thinner under load).

Reflective Ironwire visibility

The reflective ironwire really lights up when you approach it at night with a headlamp. I'm using it for guylines on my Durston tent so visibility is extremely important.

Durston Gear Reflective Ironwire

Great Reflective Ironwire from Durston Gear. Quality that can be felt, seen and used. Over and over again. Lightweight, and stronger than a moose. Highly recommended for nearly any outdoor adventure.

Reflective Ironwire

Worked great. If the same was offered in a brighter color that would be awesome. Reflection is great. Feels very strong. Ties secure knots that are easy to untie.
