So that is some weight, but it is really not huge until you are really down in the UL category.
Well, it might not be a lot, but it's still good to know. I might consider it in the future when I change my setup.
I don't think my stock webbing is long enough to go around the trees on both sides in many cases, so I wouldn't dare to leave my tree straps with, uh, "elephant trunks" at home.
I probably do carry lots of webbing et c I don't need though. Will consider this during the next few hikes, compare with the new hammock when it arrives, and see if there are any obvious upgrades.
