It's my safety knots tied against the cinch buckle being the main issue, and my weight is surely a factor on webbing stretch. No issues from the AHE or Warbonnet straps with or without safety knots. And no issues with DIYGS without safety knots (now 3rd night hang).
After about an hour long nap with DIYGS in the Safari and high winds, two safety knots against each cinch buckle, got a bit of pulling at the edges. Same as above. I think the small amount of stretch pulled against the metal is ripping the threads.
I noticed the same differences in the straps as well. I'm currently using DIYGearsupply webbing for my tree straps with Dutch clips and Dutch buckles, haven't had any issues as of yet. Given the feel of the two straps I would have thought that the WB webbing was stronger, glad to know the difference now...
