Can someone give a quick explanation (for a newbie) on why whoopie slings are so popoular and what using this system makes it more appealing as say a carabiner and webbing? There is lots of support and discussion on making the whoopie slings but I haven't really found much info on why to use them.
By the way it's -32c (-25F) here in Edmonton with more snow falling. Not exactly hanging weather!!!
