    My homemade "slap straps"

    So after a few different suspension systems, I decided to make my own. I didn't want to do whoopie slings, as I like the easy idea of the slap straps. I didn't want to run into the stretching problems, so i made my own. I've used them for a few over nights and lunch break hangs and have not had any stretching problems. What do you think?

    I used 6 feet of 9/16" webbing and a 120 cm sewn runner per side. For my biners, I'm using metolius FS mini wire gates

    Load carried on the knots of two parallel legs, the sand looks soft, someone's enjoying a clear view across a wide beach......
    Just add something white to the suspension, so Hungarians and Italians will both claim you as one of theirs.

    So what's to worry and what's not to envy?
