    I use 1000 Lb test nylon webbing, likely it will support me as I weigh considerably less than that
    My "ridge line" is also what I hang the hammock from, it is about 25 feet long, with 2 loops for the hammock to hang from, each (about) 19' from their respective ends.

    Can someone point me in the direction of some biners for the ridgeline. I want light and small (of course).

    ditto, bights on both ends, larks head over the existing knot from the original HH ridgeline, another over biner. those little stock loops are pretty tough.

    I had been wondering about the same thing as michele - i have been using those really cheap walmart mini biners for my ridgeline, it seems to be working well yet i am worried about the long haul and if they will just poop out one day. i have other biners, maybe i should replace it
