    Did you use any special threading? I'm doing the same thing, but since I don't have a thread injector, I've enlisted my mom.

    Webbing

    I purchased the webbing at REI. I picked up some continuous long fiber thread at a local fabric store. This thread was meant for sewing outdoor "stuff". There was one rack of thread labeled as for that purpose.

    This is right on. Tubular webbing is "meant" to have a little stretch in it for climbing. So after a while it will interfere with your lay. To the original poster your best bet would be to call wherever you ordered your whoopies from and add some tree straps to your order. If it was Arrowhead Equipment you can get a set for about 6 bucks.

    Arrowhead straps

    Two 6 foot straps for $9+ shipped seems like a good price. Thanks for the tip.

    After I got sick of the slap straps, I bought some of the REI tubular webbing. It was inexpensive and worked good, but I highly recommend that you use webbing from Dutch or one of the other awesome vendors you can find on this site. The savings in weight and packed sized is ridiculous.

    I switched my ENO over to whoopies and a Dutch buckle setup and it's a thing of beauty and simplicity.

    Check out the Dutch buckle-whoopie-webbing combo for a setup that will have you hanging in under a minute.

    Peace,
