    Webbing on Bridge hammock

    Is the webbing on the JRB Bridge polypropylene or polyester?

    I'm pretty sure it's polypro.

    I'm thinking about removing the webbing and going with either the OWF camo polyester webbing or using Amsteel to make a sorta Trucker's Hitch system.

    I believe it is polyester. It is kinda confusing in that it says polypro on their site but polyester on the instruction card I received. I've also read them say it is polyester on a few threads. Pan??????

    FF, et al,

    The webbing on the BMBH is polypro. The web site is correct. Some of the hang tags on the BMBH did incorrectly say polyester. These cards have been corrected to read polypro.
