I just made my first pair of whoopie slings. Total material cost? $10.80. I find that to be incredibly cheap for a suspension system that is guaranteed to hold my weight. I ordered a bunch of paracord a couple of years ago, and I don't recall it being much cheaper than that. The slings themselves took me a total of 30 minutes to make on my first try, so even time invested is minimal.
