    Snakeskins modified for a WBBB AWS

    Howdy folks. Got another question for the day.

    So I really want to use my snakeskins for my new WBBB 1.1 s with the adjustable webbing suspension system - for now till I get me whoopie slings.

    However, the ends of the snakeskins closet to the tree are very narrow, too narrow for the AWS buckle to slip through.

    I was thinking of making a careful slit where the buckles are really struggling and then reinforcing the area so the ripstop nylon does not rip any further. IDK though, I do not want to ruin them.

    I have Fronkey's netted snakeskins which are wider than the ones from Hennessy but those Fronkeyskins are perfect for my tarp - moisture reasons. Plus I feel like they may rip with the AWS pressure towards the end.


    Any solutions to this problem? Thanks!

    I really like the Lazy Slug Tube from WL. Think of it as a really phat set of skins that holds your hammock and both quilts.

    I had the same issue.

    Splitting and reinforcing would be acceptable. I actually cut the narrow end of mine off since they were longer than needed to allow it to slip over buckle and then tacked/sewed the end tighter so it would not slip over the end knot. Or you can take the buckle and amsteel loop off, put the snake skins on then put the buckle and loop back on. (Easier than you'd think.)
