We found these a few weeks ago and bought them because of the high strength tubular nylon webbing they contained. Each pack contains 150' of 2300 pound tensile strength tubular nylon. Basically if you need tubular nylon this is a great deal and ends up costing around .20/ft. If you actually need it for what it was designed for then this is an even better deal as the best price we could find anywhere was around $70. All are dated and mfg 4/98. USAF part #8140561-10. Here are the actual GI specs:The PCU-10/P Personnel Lowering Device enables the aircrewman to lower to the ground when entanglement by trees, powerlines, or rough terrain make normal parachute landing impossible. The PCU-10/P is designed to be an integral part of the PCU-16/P Torso Harness and replaces the standard back pad when installed.The PCU-10/P consists of a nylon pack with snap closure for easy release. The lowering device line is constructed of 2300 pound tensile strength tubular nylon, 150 feet in length. The last 25 feet are dyed in a different color to indicate the approach to the end of the line. The PCU-10/P hardware is constructed of cadmium plated high-grade steel. Own a piece of history!
