    There was a guy selling a complete hammock suspension kit in the For Sale section of the forums. Whoopie slings + straps and I think biners.

    Honestly, it's easy to order your slings from opie and your straps from paul. Not that I prefer one over the other...it's just an opportunity to support 2 guys over one.

    I could easily put everything together in a kit now that I have carabiners in stock. The big variable though would be making the tree straps available in a couple lengths so that people could pick the right length straps for their area. But that is only a small detail to sort out.

    I would love to do something like this... Im already throwing toggles in with every set of slings.

    The straps... IMO thats best left to a company where thats all they do. With all the color variations and different lengths folks want... StrapWorks by far is the cheapest and best scenario, IMO.

    Thats why I am just focusing on the slings and as soon as I get some more testing done, the tie outs. Its simple, I get orders out in less than 24 hours and I dont have to feel rushed and start cutting corners in order to keep things moving.

    And most folks already have a set of straps/tree huggers... Its just a matter of deciding over the toggle method or using a biner. I may pick up some of the biners I linked to in another thread and include them as an option with the slings.
