Thinking about picking some up to make some quick tree straps.
I have made and used several pairs of straps from this material and hung from them more than a dozen times - in hot cold wet and dry conditions since May of this year.
I simply tie a "Water Knot" into one end to make a loop; but you could sew a loop if you prefer.
Also, this is a great way to get a set of straps quickly; however this material is a bit heavier than what is sold by our excellent HF vendors.
Comes in variety of colors - ask the salesperson about inventory in the back- not all colors are on the retail floor.
REI: 1" Military-Spec Tubular Webbing
Yes! This works and does not stretch. Important get the "Mil-Spec" Ask any "rock climber" and they will tell you this does not stretch.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
