    I am a pretty big guy I personally would try whoopie slings made out of amsteall with some of dutches whoopie hooks. With Tree huggers of course. I am a pretty big guy like I said so I am a little hesitant to use dyanaglide.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    That does not give you many hanging options.

    Yeah but look at the weight, not to mention bulk, that he's saving!

    I think I hang with a little less on my TurtleDog stand 2 - 17" continuous loops with Dutch hooks. No tree straps required as there are no trees involved. Wood yes, Trees no.

    On my WBBB I have the standard Dutch setup from his website and it works beautifully. I will have to put it on the scale and see what ways. With the wear and tear on it, it might way little bit less than it did when it was new.

    It's great to see what the light weight hangers are doing these days.

    How do the ratchet straps compare to webbing? I thought about converting some of mine but thought there might be a friction/hold factor with the straps being slicker and having a smaller weave. Might be "nuking it," as they say in the Navy, but still.
