    Extra webbing and line

    Okay after reading the thread on the survival bracelet I thought of different ways that I carry extra webbing and line.
    The 1st one is using Zing-it for my bearbag line and I carry 50 feet. This is longer than I normally need and I always have extra.

    To carry an extra tree hugger I've made one into a dog leash.



    To carry the other tree hugger I made a belt out of it.



    For an extra whoopie sling I used one as a removable ridgeline. Connected at each end with soft carabiners. (no pic, it's raining)

    Thank You

    Nice dual use solutions. I usually don't carry spares but I probably should.

    So if you need to use the extras....your dog runs away and your pants fall down.

    Sorry, I couldn't resist.
