More information:

The angler who is hiking in by dense trail, wading into a rushing current, or battling a kayak for that elusive catch demands more from their gear – it has to be multi-functional and worth its weight. A fishing tether ultimately has one job - to secure gear – but if that job is done right it can also offer peace of mind and added functionality.

Both the large and compact Defender tethers were designed with control in mind, anchored by the tip control carabiner that both versions boast. This carabiner slips on finger to absorb the tension of the line and allow for ease of use when operating the tethered tool.

The large Defender was built to be a workhorse, housing a 48” Dyneema cable that has the capacity to handle bulkier tools. A wide body retention clip ensures that the tether isn’t going anywhere, even when working through dense brush or slippery conditions. The integrated lanyard hole provides additional carrying options – add a carabiner or tether ring to secure it to a pack or waders. The large Defender was built with a patented side release lock, when engaged the tethered tool will lock in place. If the tethered tool does get snagged on a branch or dropped downstream, an override feature kicks in to protect the tether from damage. Dual line vises set up shop on each side of the mouth, releasing tension in a matter of seconds.

Gerber tools are built to last a lifetime. To ensure optimal performance, rinse your tool with fresh water and dry thoroughly with a clean towel. Apply oil to hinges and moving parts on a regular basis.

Dyneema® is a super-strong fiber. Made from Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) and offers maximum strength with minimum weight.
