    If you do camp in a state park here, please do use 2" straps. Getting then to allow hammocks was a hard battle, and it would be a shame if they banned them again because people didn't follow the rule.

    PolyD from Dutch has the least stretch, but I'm not sure if a double layer of PolyD 1.4 would comfortably support your weight or not. HyperD 1.6 or NylonD 1.6 would probably be good options.

    Yes that rule has been around for a couple of years at least. Prior to that, hammocks were banned altogether in most state parks. Seat belt material is heavy, but it would work just fine.
