It would be a small weight penalty, surely less than the additional rope a whoopie would add ?
funny, I'd been thinking something similar this morning, to use really lightweight cord prusiked on with a clip or something. Pull the prusik to tigthen. bungy cord or shock cord is better though because it doesn't threaten to "short circuit" the suspension line that way.
I'm just gonna have to try it this weekend when I'm out on the trail!
thanks for the idea
