I'v been using 42" and 60" Harbor Freight huggers. Also have strapworks 1" and 1.5" seat belt huggers which are, I think 6'.
Like AngrySparrow, I've been toying with Turk's method of using rope huggers. The more I use the method, the better I like it. I'm getting the same results as Turk and AngrySparrow on various trees - no damage done to the tree.
My rope huggers are made from AS-78 and use a 2" steel toggle in place of the stick in the Marlin Spike that I use on webbing huggers. The huggers are Whoopie Slings made from 13' 3" rope and the finished hugger is 70+" and so can handle a tree up to 1' 10" diameter. Can be easily extended to handle a greater diameter. Rope to extend the rope huggers is light at 0.80 oz per 10' and the 10' extension would increase the usable tree diameter by slightly over 3'.
I find that with practice, I'm getting better at Turk's method and so am seriously considering making it my hugger method of choice. Less bulk and less weight. My 60" Harbor Freight huggers weigh 3.35 oz for the pair. My longer AS-78 huggers weigh 2.4 oz for the pair and are less than half the bulk of the webbing.
Those who sacrifice freedom for safety, have neither.
