    Talking Straps galore!!

    Just in case it isn't on here, once you catch the hammock bug, going to www.strapworks.com is awesome. great variety of patterns for tree-huggin' poly straps, as well as just about any other kind of "strappy" application you can think of, literally. they do custon work as well.

    Check it out. i don't work there or anything. just a huge fan.

    Thanks. Hang on.

    I have used them on several occasions and I really like the 1" seatbelt webbing.

    Thanks for the heads up! Now I can order some new tree huggers that don't sag through the night.

    What style do you recommend, loop size and length ?? Is the 1 inch the way to go?

    I personally liked the paterened 1" Polyester, with 3" loops, at a 5' length. I mean c'mon, you can get 5 different argyle prints, or polka dots, whatever you want. I have rasta stripe ones and i'll try to get a pic up. they work great!

    Have a general question on using a simple sling. Do you have to use a dutch clip or carabiner to attach to a tree, or can you simply use the loop on the sling to feed the other end through?

    Currently I'm using climbers webbing with an overhand loop and didn't know if a strap loop can take the stress.

    The loops on the simple sling are super reinforced, they make these specifically for this purpose. just a few wraps around a smaller tree, and it will tighten on itself. I use a biner in the wrapped end to attach my whoopie slings, but it's not necessary. Toggles work just fine too. the slings are low impact on the tree, which is the best part. I like the option of choosing my own dimentions in a product as well, great selling point. i'm not sold on the dutch loops yet. just not my thing.

    Frankly, it would have never occurred to me to do anything other than feed the other end through the loop. Then again, some people don't trust a marlin spike hitch and toggle, which boggles my mind. To each their own.
