    Here's a link to Tier Gear's tree straps for your reference:
    https://www.tiergear.com.au/shop/ham...two-loops-pair

    I made my own (well, I bought and cut, my wife sewed) from straps bought from Lincraft for a couple of dollars a metre.

    Most people use 25mm (1-inch) width - a good compromise between tree protection and tieability.
    Hey Chris, thanks for that, I actually have some straps at home that look pretty similar, will just need to get some loops put in em.

    Or sacrifice the hook by cutting if off, just add another bowline loop to that end, melt the cut edge with a lighter to stop fraying.

    Later on...Aussie made.

    I should have said ratchet straps....thought you might've had a couple of spare ones handy after tying your canoe down to your vehicle.

    Have fun on your next hang.
    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    Welcome, from Florida.

    It's sure a blast seeing the expanse of the Hammocking Community.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
