For Ranger School, this is a mandatory item, and you are required to bring 100ft. They want them to be in the original packaging (like it says on the bottom of the packing list) so this isn't something I recommend you getting from your unit, unless you can get one in its original packaging. Also, I recommend getting two 100ft bundles, because after you open your bundle its hard to keep it neat and its nice having one that is neat and ready to go if you need some quick. You will use this for all the tie downs through the three phases.
For Sapper Leader Course, this is a mandatory item, and you are required to bring 250ft. I recommend you get this from your unit, unless you can't get it in the original packaging. Having it in the original packaging is nice during the layout because it's obvious you have +250ft and when your in need of some 550 quick. You will use this for all the tie downs during Patrols Phase and randomly throughout the course.
For SFAS, this is an optional item and you are authorized to bring 100ft.
