Thanks for replying back about the tree straps. I ordered a set of carabiners from Brandon when I ordered the 1.0 (i). I'll just use the black straps for now, but I will be replacing them...I have a camping trip next weekend, so for now the black will be used.
Reason I don't want black straps is that black is the worst color when it comes to night vision equipment.
I have been researching on this forum for the past few days and saw that strapworks site...I'll be ordering some polyester webbing from them and finding someone locally to sew the loops for me.
