    Dutch Clips

    Could someone please answer the question about what's so great about the Dutch Clips. This was posted on the best gear 2009 by someone who uses Nano biners. I'm curious also.

    And do these go with whoopie slings or without. Needless to say, trying to upgrade is quite confusing.

    SURE! Simple, strong, easy to use ... and light weight. I've used and still use Nano's but switched all hammocks to Dutch clips when they became available.

    They go on one inch tree huggers to replace 'biners... nothing to do with Whoopie Slings.

    Hehe - but I'm not sure I want y'all keeping me warm on a cold winter night...not most of you, anyway. I'm sticking with the MWUQ4!

    Though I did just get the GoLite Ultra in today...haven't weighed it yet but I'm pretty impressed for that price ($150 shipped).
