    Kevlar or spectra webbing?

    Anyone use Kevlar or spectra webbing for a suspension system or ridge line. I was ordering supplies today and found this? 1 inch webbinhas 4500 lbs breaking point and almost now stretch. Almost as light as polypropylene webbing. It was a little expensive but not horrible.

    Thoughts?

    Sounds like a bit of overkill with two disadvantages, weight & price. 1" wide polyester webbing is tried and true.
