    I got the mosquito from JRB and the webbing with it is tubular. About 14' on each end. Nylon and kinda stretchy. It also is kinda slick.

    This is really hard for me to say....coming from a gearhead....*GULP*..

    You might wanna start simple and see how you like it. I'd suggest trying the straps by themselves with the 4-knot. If it's not what you want, THEN consider buckles or daisy chains....

    Wow. I think I need a beer now

    Oh...don't worry, I've actually decided to sew in loops on both ends of my straps and NOT cut the spectra on my hammock. This will allow me to either tie my spectra to one end and use the straps w/the Speer 4-knot OR untie the spectra and use them as really really long tree huggers. I'm going to see how I like that first, and then consider buckles if neither works to my liking.

    I just figured if an order was going in....I'd get a couple and have them handy for when/if I decide to go that route.

    I think you need a beer too! The GRE alone will drive ya to drink!!
