Has anyone experimented with using a width of fabric as a tree strap rather than webbing?
I was messing around with some strips of rip stop nylon for a pack project and it got me thinking. Wouldn't a six inch wide strip of fabric be strong enough and lighter than webbing? Wouldn't it also distribute the weight better on the tree assuming it was tied right? More of a sling than a strap... Or two tiny hammocks to hammock my hammock to the tree. How you treated the edges of the fabric would be important for sure.
Would that work or am I heading for a bruised tailbone?
