Read the Truckers Hitch write up by Headchange4u. Good system. I have a couple of questions. I have a HH Asym with the spectra suspension/ridgeline. Can I use a double figure 8 on a bight on the HH suspension line with a D-ring biner? Then run the separate tensionsing line to another biner in the tree hugger loop(s). Seems like this would cut the friction on the tree hugger loops and still make use of the TH system. Saves time in threading the tensions line through the loops. I know this adds some ozs for biners, but they can be used for a lot of other things on the pack. I have used the double 8 many times on my climbing gear and it is easy to remove as it does not cinch up like some other knots. Also still retains about 80% of the line strength.
Second set of questions. Has anyone used a spectra webbing for tree huggers? it is usually a smaller width than nylon webbing but it won't break under hanging conditions.
