    Some of these suspension systems are so light that you can double their weight just by getting dirt on them.

    I guess if I wanted to I could shave some weight off my tree huggers by getting some lighter weight webbing but for now this will work.

    We have reverted to the Harbor Freight straps for tree huggers since the straps are used to secure the pack to the Dixon Roller Pack - dual use and do not add bulk to the pack this way. Also, since it takes 7 straps to fully secure the pack to the frame, we have our choice of using a single 6' strap tree hugger or joining 2 to get a 11.5' strap tree hugger. We don't count them in the suspension weight.

    Trail stick for the Marlin Spike toggle in the tree hugger..

    Using AS-78 for Whoopie Slings and 1.75 mm Lash-It for Ridge Line: 1.8 oz

    Using 2 mm Dynaglide for Whoopie slings and 1.75 mm Lash-It for Ridge Line: 0.5 oz

    about 6 oz. That includs UCR made from Amsteel, tree straps, and tent stakes for the marlin spike hitch. I know I can get lighter by shortening the tree straps and using sticks-found-on-ground instead of the tent stakes. BUt this is working.
    here's another thread on the same topic:

    So ... how much of the tree strap that contacts the tree actually protects the bark? Just the back portion, the whole thing?

    Just how short can your tree huggers be?
