I am new to the forum and have enjoyed perusing all the info contained here. I had a question regarding the weight comparisons of the different ways to lash your hammock to a tree. I wittled my HH down to 25 ounces with tarp and snake skins. I like the idea of the other lashing methods, that cleat thingy (the little light one), the ring buckle style, but I had a hard time telling if these options are lighter than just using the tree straps as provided by the manufacturer. Also is there any threads on here about the lightest hammocks?
