    That is nylon webbing. I checked the MIL specs on it a while back. You can get camo polyester webbing (much less stretch and higher breaking strength) from OWF for like .91 per yard, or ~.30 per foot. It's what I use now.

    Do you have a picture of their woodland green webbing? I am curious to see how their webbing actually looks. And do they have any rated capacities on their webbing? I read their disclaimer down at the bottom about not using it, but I understand several people here have used it with sucess. I weigh 160 lbs, so I figure that is 320 lbs force at both ends with a 30 degree sag, right?


    EDIT: Did this as a edit instead of a post, didn't want to bump the thread back up. HC4U-Thanks for that. Think I will go with something rated, I figured the camo would not make a big difference over basic green webbing.

    Check out the Trucker's Hitch thread. The tree huggers are made from the OWF webbing.

    The woodland green OWF camo polyester webbing is some great webbing. Been using it for a good while now. Looks really sharp. Rated to 2000lbs. according to Warbonnettguy who called them and asked. They don't sew the loops for you so keep this in mind.

    FWIW, I emailed them and they rated it at 3,200 lbf. They also said that once they run out of stock, this webbing will be replaced with a 3,500 lbf webbing since the current one went out of production.

    Wow that's pretty strong. Just looking at mine I would never guess it was rated that high. Unless it is a different batch than when I ordered.
