    Crazy Creek / Cinch Buckle Support setup

    I got some buckles from Crazy Creek, but I didn't like how the Crazy Creek uses the webbing so I made my own. Check out my system here:

    Looks interesting. As you know I am currently just starting my adventure into hammocking but it has crossed my mind on more than one occasion that I want to try out a number of different hammocks from different manufacturers. I will keep this in mind as I venture forth into the realm of homemade hanging gear. Thanks for the info Jeff

    Homemade gear is great - I like my homemade hammocks more than the commercial models I've tried. Plus it's like figuring out a puzzle when you make a new project to solve a new problem. And THEN you have to get the weight down...another puzzle...it's an addictive, never-ending cycle!

    hehe Tell me about it. All you homemade gear makers have got me looking at sewing machines. I plan on buying one in the very near future. I think without ever sewing a stich yet I am hooked.

    Hey Jeff - I posted this on WB too, but maybe you didn't see it....how much did those Crazy Creek buckles set you back?

    I've used these buckles for several hours worth of sleeping and laying around now - absolutely no slippage. I used Ed's 1" polypro webbing, and the 1" nylon webbing used for climbing harnesses that's a bit thicker, and both work. I like 'em!

    Still not sure it's worth the extra 2.5 oz over the Air Core/Hugger set. My pack is light enough now that I can spare an extra 2.5 oz if I want to, though.

    Thanks, Arkwater...that looks exactly like the Crazy Creek buckle, just with a different finish. Even the little bulge on the edges. I'm even gonna add that link to the webpage.
