One issue with using cord for the suspension arc, is that it tends to cut into your leg when getting in and out of the hammock as well as when lounging in the hammock in chair mode. This is less of an issue when using webbing (at least 1/2" wide). Of course the webbing weighs more and is a little more bulk to contend with.
