Mornin' Y'all,

I need a little help. I need a set of tree straps for a hammock I recently made for my better half. At the moment, budget constraints seem to be pointing me toward retasking a set of tie-down straps (ratchet straps?) from wallyworld instead of ordering a simple sling from strapworks (being broke sucks).

When I looked at the straps available at wallyworld the other day, I couldn't tell which were made of polyester from the packaging. Can anyone tell me which straps will are polyester and which are nylon? Also, I see different strengths ranging from 300 to about 700 lbs. My first thought would be to go with the highest rated strength...of course, those are more expensive. Which might be the most suitable?
