    I am wondering how this worked out for you... I was thinking of folding the webbing in half and sewing it together every 5 or so inches to make loops for a quick setup.

    No, nylon webbing is unfortunately designed to stretch. PolyPro or Polyester is better for static load applications like hammocking.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Yup, like AS said it will stretch every time you get a load on it, then when unloaded it will shrink back and be ready to stretch again when you load it up next. Polyester is best IMO as it dose not stretch and is stronger than polypro. I just like it better myself. But YMMV

    Many people, myself included, have purchased seat belt webbing for the lack of stretch. Hmmm...where did I purchase it? Paul??

    I have used the dynamic load nylon webbing, and have ended up on the ground, gently of course, twice in one night.
