    Suspension Question

    I have removed the stock buckle/strap suspension from my WBBB and have put my DIY whoopies on each end of the hammock. Then attached adjustable ends of whoopies to tree huggers with a biner, then attached huggers with dutch clips. I have recently purchased dutch biners and am going to again change my suspension. I am going again change my suspension around to match Dutch's advice with the dutch biners, as stated in this video.

    At this point I am using the stock amsteel continuous loops from the buckles to attach the hammock to the dutch biner.

    Does anyone see anything wrong with this set up?

    That is good. You can put the loop on the hammock or the hugger. I personally like the loop on the hammock and teh whoopie on the hugger like this. This is the real Dutch by the way.
