    That depends entirely on how you make them, doesn't it? The ones I made have a length of about 2" that is normal 7/64" thickness and they've been working very well with my strap anchors.

    I got mine from ReadyStraps, but I heard he went out of business. You can get 2" webbing from Dutch but he doesn't offer them with sewn loops as a standard offering.

    I've used all three, and ultimately switched to Strap Anchors, which are also available from BIAS. They are the easiest to adjust and have the most flexibility in terms of suspension length.

    I place mine such that if you were to draw a straight line from one tree to the other along the ridge line of the hammock, that line would intersect the place where the strap goes through the loop. ...

    You can use hammocks in Florida. If you use them in a state park, you have to use straps that are at least 2" wide for attaching both your hammock and your tarp to the tree.

    I'd recommend standard width and sewn footbox. It will be plenty wide for you (you're almost the same size as me, and mine is) and the snaps aren't that useful in most situations.
