I just got my hammock in today (Trek lightgear double) and mistakenly thought that it came with tree straps. My dad has some 1" webbing that he's going to send me for some straps but that will take a few days to arrive. Does anybody have some cheap alternatives that I can use for a temporary suspension setup. It doesn't have to be very light just cheap and durable. I have seen webbing at Lowes that was pretty cheap but I'm not sure if it will work.
Would Nylon ratchet straps work? I know that nylon stretches but it will still hold a lot of weight right? I don't plan to use these long and Don't plan to go camping with my hammock til I have some proper straps.
Thanks in advance.
