Whether you are going camping or going on a military operation, it is always useful to know how far away from camp you have hiked. The Rothco Pace Counter allows you to keep track of how far you have walked so that you can easily find your way back home. There are 13 total beads on the cord: nine beads are on the bottom and four beads are on top. Most hikers slide one of the bottom beads up for every 10 paces taken. Once the 100th step is reached, the nine beads near the knot are supposed to slide toward the bottom while one of the beads on top slides upward, away from the knot in the middle. This allows you to keep a precise pace count on your journey.
For decades, Rothco has proven itself to be one of the leading manufacturers in outdoor and tactical gear. You can see the dedication that goes into making every item, including the pace counter. Whether you are involved in military operations or you just like to go camping every so often, Rothco makes the gear you need to stay ahead of the game.
