    It's very similar to a chef's knife roll, which was the first thing I thought of. That's not a knock on it in any way - it looks like a good product and I like the shock cord closure system.

    For argument's sake, you could save around 25% of the weight if Jared made the same item using 0.5 oz mesh.

    I don't know what you've tried already, but you could try tightening the primary suspension a little and loosening the foot end cinch a little.

    I'm guessing he means the Fish Hook is used at the tree end of the strap, in place of a carabiner or passing the webbing through its own loop - much the same way a Dutch Clip is used.
