    Webbing

    got question about webbing is there a difference in using
    Flat nylon webbing and polyester webbing

    I almost got some from onrope.com then I noticed that guys on the forum were talking about polyester webbing thought I'd ask first

    If there is a difference can anyone tell me where I can get yellow polyester webbing

    The difference is that Nylon stretches, some of it a lot. Leaving you sinking throughout the night. Then it will shrink back down ready to stretch again the next use. Polyester dose not stretch. Other than ratchet straps, some of which are poly of one type or another, I have not been able to find much for polyester other than the black and camo that we stock.
