|Webbing is a static, flat material used for building anchors, quickdraws, slings, runners and more. Most companies sell webbing in any length you wish (normally around 20 to 40 cents per foot). Webbing used for climbing is tubular webbing and varies between 1/4 an inch to 2 inches wide. Cavers use tubular webbing to route accessory and shock cords for ascension systems that to allow free movement of the cord without allowing it to rub against their bodies. Flat webbing is used for applications such as backpack straps.|
Webbing is extremely strong (normally around 4000 pounds), but cuts very easily (i.e. over a sharp edge).
Webbing is tied using a Water Knot.
