The USGS Kevlar taglines consist of a Kevlar inner core enclosed within a woven nylon jacket in a bright orange/yellow color. The “tags” or marks are made with black marking ink creating a high visibility contrast. The wading tagline is 1/16” (0.16 cm) diameter. The wading Kevlar is waxed with a commercial grade thread wax to prevent from absorbing excess water when in use.

The Kevlar can be cleaned with re-waxing cleaner pads as needed or returned for complete re-waxing.

Imperial wading taglines are marked with one mark every two feet, two marks every 10 feet and three marks every 100 feet.

Metric wading taglines are marked with one mark every meter, two marks every 10 meters and three marks every 100 meters.

The marks are not numbered in any way.

The USGS HIF (Hydrological Instrumentation Facility) Type 1 tagline reel is made of high impact Lexan plastic and can hold up to 600 feet (180 meters) of wading Kevlar tagline.  The reel has a built in hollow handle into which a 1/2" diameter bank stake can be inserted to anchor the reel on the stream bank while in use.  A variable drag device and lock down bolt are features of the reel.
