    On my hammock I use a heavier and stronger setup just to feel secure.
    One inch or two inch tree straps with a climbing rated biner then webbing to my RR. Simple and easy and my hammock straps never get dirt or sap.

    I really don't think much about my hang angle, I'm over six feet so I put tree straps head high, adjust hammock for good sitting position and that makes the angle probably around 30 degrees.

    I am going to buy the Dutch clips just to have. Maybe I will use them, maybe I will just play with them.


    You have been hooked, line, and sinkered,,because when you buy just one thing off Dutch, your hooked into having more, and more,,and more,,Dutch Bling! No way either of beating the habit!!!

    dutch clips are nice just for speed I have ENO SN I use his whoopie hook with a chain link (works really well) But to save weight and money I dont use a dutch clip because I can just run my suspension right the through the loop of the webbing.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    that's plain funny!

    You should have seen me climbing, that was really funny.
    Well tomorrow I'm off on a one night trip to Wy. 11,000 ft with a 40* UQ. Wish me luck.

However that is the loaded angle and it is pretty tough to have a loaded hammock with less than a 30 degree angle unless you are starting with it tight from tree to tree and the trees are prettt close together.
    I forgot the above fact. I have hung my hammock very close to the trees I am using for support. Thank you for the reminder. If I can rig up between two trees I do it, sometimes I just have a few inches between my hammock and the tree to work with. We have lots of trees, they just are not always spaced the right distance, closer works better than too far apart. I am short and sometimes I can not get the hammock hung high enough to get the position correct, so I use trees close together. I had better start thinking about what I am doing, since I am not a 90 pound carpenter's dream!
