The HH huggers I have are 1" nylon. They probably stretch a bit but you can't really tell with that short length. With full-length webbing like Ed uses, you could tell.
That tubular webbing is overkill but it would work. That strength is over 4000 lbs, where Ed's is 700. I made some huggers from that tubular stuff...works fine.
104" of the tubular stuff is ~4.5 oz for ~.50 oz/ft
80" of the 1" HH huggers is ~1.75 oz for ~.26 oz/ft
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
