    Need Help

    First, I am not a hammock sleeper. I bring a hammock on trips for leisure time to read on lunch breaks or at the end of the day. It is for comfort. I joined for the knowledge here and really need help.

    I just purchased a Grand Trunk Nano 7 Hammock and need the lightest method to attack the carabineers to the trees. I recently sold an 19 ounce Byer to decrease weight. This is the reason I purchased the Nano 7.

    Any suggestions? Also, I am willing to pay someone for a lightweight method if it was homemade. I am not good with constructing products like that.

    I think whoopie slings, short tree huggers, toggles is about the lightest setup. No biners. There are cottage industries that sell them here. Check out the Vendors forum.

    Ty! But, I can't take credit for it as you know. That is pretty cool that you knew him. My Dad, his Unlce, and my oldest brother are all named after him. The nickname has traveled with me since a Freshman in HS.

    Here is the lightest suspension system I know of.
    Watch from 2:22 to 2:52 in the video.

    It is the line/strap suspension from Warbonnet.
