    Webbing / Tree Straps - thin

    Since I joined this forum a couple years ago, I cant get rid of this DIY bug. I think I am on hammock number 6 now. A year or so ago, I bought some supplies and webbing from either DIY or AHE (multiple orders confusion) and can't recall who sold the great thin and lightweight webbing. Looking to furnish two hammocks with tree straps, and another with just full webbing suspension.

    Has anyone also found a local company that sells decent webbing that doesn't look like it has been pulled from a canvas bag?

    Thanks,

    Local stores carry "ratchet straps". You have to make sure they are polyester and check the rated strength.

    AutoZone and other auto supply stores, Harbor Freight and other hardware stores and big box stores.
