One of the reasons I wound up going with the rings (other than I already had some) was that Jeff switched from buckles to rings and seemed to like them better. Jeff's one of the few internet guys I trust
The rings appeal to me on some level, probably because they're so simple and universal. But my mind's not made up by any means. What do you like better about the buckles?
I used the rings for awhile and really liked them. AngrySparrow sent me a pair of cinch buckles to see if I liked them better and I did. Your not relying on a safety hitch to keep your butt off the ground like with the rings. The rings have the potential to come uneven and drop you also. Some have a little problem getting the cinch buckles loose if you tie the hammock real tight like most do in a Hennessy, but it is no big deal. A main reason Just Jeff switched to the rings was that when he was using the Crazy Creek buckles (no longer available) he had two extra small pieces of webbing to keep track of. He later did away with these extra pieces. I think he's now going to the garda hitch method. Could be wrong.
