RR suspension mod using Dutchware

I had a play with the suspension of my new WBRR using some Dutchware products and thought it may be of interest to some .

On my last hike it was a bit difficult for me to find clearings between the slightly longer distances between trees needed for the RR. So I was looking for ways to make the RR suspension a bit more shorter and flexible with out compromising stability and over stressing the spreader bars. First I used some whoopies to one Dutch buckle on the foot end , this worked well and I was able to reduce the length of the suspension triangle with out making the hammock too unstable.

Then I thought of using two Dutch Buckles on one strap so the outside diameter of the tree could included into the suspension triangle, this made the hammock very stable.

Since I only had 2 buckles I looked a ways to use my clips , but have since put in an order for some more buckles. This mod to me added allot more flexibility without any additional weight. I will take it with me on my next hike and test it " in the wild "

Cheers
