    New hanger...webbing/buckles or whoopie?

    All great suspensions listed above. Let’s knot forget knots with Dutch’s new lightweight tree straps (also supplied by RipStopByTheRoll and Myers Tech and almost all of our cottage vendors
    The ultra light strap goes from tree to continuous loop on your hammock. It’s held together by certain knots

    If you go to a local Hammock Hang, you will see all kinds of suspensions—and they all work!
    You will develop your own style according to your needs.
    If you want to go light weight and learn to cuss at same time—knots are way to go

    Just depends what you care most about. If weight isn't a concern, buckles and straps are definitely easiest. But ease isn't important to everyone. There is enjoyment in setting up with whoopies and using the MSH with a toggle. I used whoopies for a few years and they were great. Purchased cinch bugs last year from Dutch and they work great too. No complaints for either type of system. I personally enjoy a the fiddling and find the buckles with straps a little less fun.

    Dynaglide whoopies with kelvar straps. Lightweight, low bulk, no knots to bind, works and it's fun to say whoopie!

    Totally a matter of preference. I prefer whoopie slings for the savings (albeit little) in volume.

    cant beat the new dyneema webbing/buckle combination for weight and versatility.

    Shug says it all.

    I used whoopies but dyneema is really expensive here(over $5 per m) so i repurposed my whoppies and made my own friction devices and use tree straps with a single line larks headed onto the tree strap and straight to my friction devices-when camping.

    When i drive to the beach i use my upholstery cotton hammock,which is bulky and heavy,wth tree straps ,marlin spike hitch with steel pegs,weight is not an issue here as i walk up to 100 meters to the tree
