The suspense is thrilling me!
I would love to see a sub forum with this very type post in it. Our cottage vendors posting specials or products with a option to purchase. Hammock and backpacking related gear.
Nice rig, fighting the urge to order.
Gonna have pics up tonight showing several ways to use this set up only differance is i had gary put dee rings on on end of the straps
Check back later for pics and Gary get yourself listed in the vendor catagory
So, as a slight variation on this...
What would be the best method (and shortest) to attach those buckles right to the hammock itself?
Then you could use tree strap with 'biner around the tree,
and the strap would go into the buckle. Super quick, super simple.
If the manufacurer is not doing this, that is kinda their choice.
Nice looking setup, though as a light guy I think Ill stick with dyneema
But lark's head the cinch buckle to it before running through the end channel on the hammok.
You could also larks head a cinch buckle on an Amsteel continuous loop.
Here i have readystraps with lock n loads with continuos loops spliced on them,one setup with amd one setup without but i use a carabiner and i would use the continuos loop to attach my ridgeline but i forgot it at home so use your imagination.
As you can see i can larks head the loops right onto the stock cord that came with the hammock or replace it by running my c-loops right thru the channel.
In all my readystrap setups my straps have a dee ring installed on one end.
And last but defintly not last i also use the all time classic dutch clip-dutch buckle set up.
Not sure if one setup is better than another,guess it is personal choice and since they are all great setups i will use them all,just take turns
