Blue Water Ropes is a family-owned, American rope manufacturer with climbing are the core. In 1969, the company designed and manufactured the first American-made kernmantle caving rope. They went on to become the first American rope company to integrate kernmantle into dynamic climbing ropes. Blue Water ropes are the standard for quality and durability. They are the favourite among canyoning ropes and webbing because they have the highest quality ratings, lowest impact force, and lowest grams per meter.
