    length of stock straps?

    was planning on repalcing my stock straps with some non-wicking versions, however I neglected to measure before coming in to work today - anyone know how long there are, or how long i should get?

    12 feet according to specs at the web site. No matter what kind of webbing you get, you will still need something to keep the water from running down the webbing into the hammock. A drip line might be enough, or some say twisting the webbing helps. But a cinch buckle or ring buckle set up works real good.

    Or, you can just put a couple of knots in the stock webbing, just out side the channel, one or two knots on each side of the webbing. It has worked very well for us.
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
