    6' whoopies on hammock, AHE 6' tree slings, and whoopie's Nano 23 Biner. Everything light weight and simple, and quick.

    And for larger trees, I carry couple of 4' pieces of amsteel with a locked brummel loop on each end for extensions around the heftier trees.

    For my HH, I have whoopies attached to tree huggers with nacrobiners, with a Dutch clip at the end. It takes more time to deal with the snakeskins than it does to get the hammock hung. Takedown is just loosen one whoopie and unhook the Dutch clips - just a few seconds. And it's all one piece, so nothing to lose.

    I'll be moving this system over to my new Blackbird, but haven't done it yet. The strap suspension that came with the BB is a real PITA compared to what's on my HH.

    For me, the strap suspension on my Blackbird is easier and quicker to use than whoopie slings. Now that should confuse the noobs out there.

    As using a tarp is a good idea about 95% of the time, I consider "set-up" to mean setting up tarp and hammock. That's one reason I often use a true structural ridgeline for my tarp. It adjusts quickly with whoopie slings on each end attached to tree straps that use Dutch clips. Then the hammock attaches to the ridgeline, with no adjustment needed.

    Have played with various forms of suspension and for me nothing is faster than a webbing suspension with a biner or Dutch Clip at the end. Just wrap the end of the webbing around the tree and and clip to itself. Then adjust length at the cinch buckles (or descender rings).

    Weight and space are a different issue.
