    Pacific Northwest Tree strap size?

    I'm currently hammockless! Sold my HH, and waiting for my WBBB to come in!

    What size tree straps do you carry? The ones that came on my HH were pretty tiny, or maybe our trees are just MASSIVE!

    Do you carry multiple options? Or just big ones?

    Been using 12 foot straps, But carry 15 footer for large Cedar's. Hung a few times & no issues yet.

    Ditto on 15' straps, the firs in the back yard hang spot are both over 10' in circumference, I also carry a "back-up" set of Whoopies, just in case...

    I carry the yellow 15' Harbor Freight straps. Better to much than to little and I can save an ounce or 2 someplace else to keep off the ground.
