I've been using 3' lengths of 1" tubular webbing with loops on each end as tree huggers. Many times the 3' length doesn't work out perfectly (clipping my figure 9 into both loops or feeding one end of the webbing through the other loop) and I end up tying a butterfly or inline figure 8 in the webbing at the desired length. Not too much of a hassle but not super efficient.
Also, I'm pretty sure the webbing stretches considerably over the course of the night. My rear end somtimes ends up a couple feet lower than where it began. I'm pretty sure the webbing is needle loom nylon. We've got buckets of it at the fire station. It was donated by the local armory but we don't use it as life safety webbing.
I've been considering these from CMC Rescue.
Anyone use these or a similar product? They are certainly strong enough and look like they would offer numerous options for wrapping around trees of different diameters. Thanks for your input.
