Alright, so I decided to try a hammock on my next camping trip, I am pretty excited, so excited I decided to make my own hammock as well. Now I got my 1.9 ripstop, some type III paracord, some bug netting, some 1" webbing, and a tarp for rainfly.
Now I realized at the last second that I don't have any rings for my suspension (not required, but I wanted it to be easy). I was curious on what you guys thought about this idea. I have some old canvas belts with the rings for a buckle, they aren't welded so they are not super strong, but do you think they would be able to hold 220 pounds of dude?
Normally I would just order some descending rings, and I am sure most people will suggest that, but sadly my next trip is actually in 3 days so I don't have the time/money for that. Also I understand I can just hitch the webbing and cord together and skip the rings all together, which I am OK with, just curious what you guys thought about the belt loops.
