    Of whoopie slings and hammock straps

    So, I have a set of whoopie slings I have yet to use. I also have a set of straps with buckles instead of loops. Do I need 'biners for this set up or is that something I can ditch?

    Thanks for any and all replies.

    I would think buckled on straps would hold a Whoopie sling just fine. Test locally and sit gingerly!
    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.

    I decided to get continuous loops - 15 inchers with whoopie hooks strung on them for gathering the ends of my hammock and 8 inchers to larks head around my cinch buckle. They are color-coded in my daughter's college colors so I can designate the head end from the foot end.

    Thank you all for your input and helping me figure out what to do
