    You can certainly do without the biners because they are just a convenience.My camp Nano's at 22 grams are such that I want to be able to easily disconnect from the tree the next morning and start stuffing the hammock and quilt in a sack with the straps attached to the hammock.

    Some of us old and not so old people have been reported to forget the strap left on the tree,hike all day,then realize they forgot to pack the strap.Has not happened to me......YET.Btw,I like the descender rings because I find them easier to use than any sort of buckle.Mine are just larked onto the CL.

    Another unplanned perk of Dutch's polypro/dyneema webbing, my straps are far less likely to blend in with the tree than with standard black.

    Cool Tucking the bight...

    I love that little double ring mod about tucking the bight under the lower ring. Foolproof. lb

    I often use these rappelling rings when tying a ridgeline or other utility line at a campsite. Like where you'd put the loop in a Trucker's Hitch. I specifically would like a smaller ring--like 1" even. Do they exist? I've looked around and haven't seen a ring that small.
    Thanks,
