    I'm intrigued... is this the blanket you were talking about? Seems like a great idea. Down for $80 would be awesome.

    Makes sense to me. :) IMO, if anywhere, the UQ and TQ are a great place to "invest" a bit more money than you normally would, so to speak. I went with an ENO Doublenest for my first hammock (got...

  41. Is any of the webbing at REI good for tree straps?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if REI's climbing webbing is polyester? Or is most of it nylon?

    Thinking about picking some up to make some quick tree straps. :)
