Ok, hanging gang, I was going to order my SMC descending rings from REI today, but they're out of stock, which would put them on backorder. However, if you go to SMC's website, they can be ordered directly from the manufacturer http://www.smcgear.net/products.asp?cat=5&pid=44. They're $2.75 from SMC versus the $2.50 from REI, but if you need them, the extra quarter is worth it, I'm sure.

The webbing is from Strapworks, lightweight 1" polypro w/ 600 lb test. And they have LOADS of perty colors to choose from
Just curious....why do some people use a beaner for securing the strap to the tree. I just tie a bolin(sp) loop at the end of the strap. Why carry two extra biners when you don't have to? BTW....I love the ring system.
I did this very set up this weekend... Not a happy camper. Maybe it had something to do with the webbing that I used, but shortly after I laid down there was a great thud onto the ground...
I did this exactly as Miu has pictured, but my webbing slipped the rings.
Any suggestions as to what went wrong?
