Yes, that helps a lot!

I actually bought an adjustable ridgeline when I got my whoopieslings, so that should help speed up the adjustment process a bit. Once I get it to the length I like where it's comfortable, I can use Camoform tape to tape off the excess...I love the Camoform tape stuff, btw...I cut thin strips of it to wrap the whoopie slings for storage, as well as keeping the tree hugger straps bundled.
