So I was at my local sporting goods retailer the other day and I picked up a couple of Coghlans Utility Straps for $1.99 each. They're 6' long 1" polypropylene straps with a sewn on buckle. I'm basically looking to upgrade my ENO single nest for my son (8yo) to camp in.
So I cut off the super cheap buckle and now I have a 6' strap with a sewn loop on the end. It remains to be seen if the loop is sufficiently sewn, but either way it's a cheap source for strap material, and if it fails a figure 8 would work just fine. My intent is to use these with a marlin spike hitch and some whoopie slings.
Anyone else trusted their hang to a Coghlan's strap?
