    The Yeti will work but it takes a lot of fiddling to get a tight fit. The Lynx fits perfect with no fiddling/adjustment. Just clip in the four mini biners and you're done, easy peazy.

    Yea, it probably could. I'd be worried that the suspension lines could slip of the cinch bugs type hooks. I haven't talked with anybody that has had a problem with the whoopie hooks slipping off.
