    Why isn't Camo webbing a big seller?

    When I added camo polyester webbing to my inventory I figured it would fly off of the shelf. But to my surprise, it barely moves. To be honest, the month of July has been stellar for Readystrap. And I thank Hammock forums members for a lot of that. In July alone you guys cleaned me right out of 500 cinch buckles and over 2000 ft of webbing and I appreciate it.
    But why the long face when it come to Camo webbing?

    People are probably afraid they won't notice it when they're packing up and will leave their straps on the trees.

    Man, you have to be in quite a rush to leave a strap around a tree.
    I usually always take a good look around the camp before I leave. Cant imagine someone just chucking stuff into their pack and running off.

    as a retired military man, I'm happy not to surround myself with camouflage anything. Kinda been there, done that, don't need to do it anymore.

    Too easy to leave behind?

    I don't know, I like camo. I've just never had the occasion to buy any as my hammocks came equipped.
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!

    Got a point there. I guess camo straps won't go to well with a red hammock

    I guess I can understand that. Didn't retire from the Military but spent 4 years in. Still pretty tough to bow hunt turkey's in safety orange though.

    I love camo stuff! The camo poly webbing tree straps I have from two different sources over the years have been very thin and sort of slippery compared to the black ones I have and the black ones that came with my WBBB XLC. When I tried cinch buckles on the camo ones, one slid under load and the strap was wrecked.

    I haven't needed to buy any strapping in a while, but if I did, I would shy away from camo on the chance it would be similar to the camo webbing I have and would therefore not want to use it with cinch buckles.

    Is your camo webbing different in weave, thickness, or texture from the other colors?

    Take it easy,
