I guess after 14 years of tying up and using string hammocks it's time to broaden my horizons a little. I will probably bring one of mine along as a back-up until I gain confidence in the cloth units. (O ye of little faith)
I would hate to have a trip ruined due to a rip or blow out.
I guess that webbing is next on my list and possibly those buckles as well. They certainly seem to have a loyal following here. Ed carries some and I have been very impressed with the way he does business. Trek Light has treated me right, too.
Just thinking that I could replace the hooks on the hammock with the CC buckles and use the Trek light Carabiners on the Speer webbing and be done. Does that sound right?
Also, does anyone use a buckle type set-up on their tarps?
