    Need some direction

    Old dog trying to learn some new tricks here. Last time I tried hanging, I was using Dutch clips ( i know JRB carries them) and toggles and whoopie slings, but now that I'm back everything has gotten high tech and my brain is having a hard time processing all the options. Plus Dutch is good people and I like Ti.

    So with that said if I wanted to hang my WBBB and use one of Stormcrow's 4 season cuben tarps what would I need to order from Dutch to make that happen?

    Thanks in advance. Time to go work on Memorial Day

    Grab tarp flyz or tarp biner with a ridgline (very easy with the Ti hook on one end and flyz on the other) for the HG. For the wbbb, you can always go with his complete whoopie hook package and be very happy!

    Give the man a shout, I'm sure he'd be very happy to help you with any questions!

    Disclaimer: I have most of Dutch's products and they are all well though out and well executed designs.

    While one of my rigs, same as the one you describe, has Dutch buckle, hooks, flyz, ridgeline biners, etc. I also have been simplifying another of my rigs to almost no hardware. So to say, Dutchware is fun to use and it works amazingly well but by no means should not having it keep you from getting your hammock and tarp setup.

    I recommend that for now you thread your straps, tie a marlin spike hitch, do a truckers hitch on your ridgeline, etc. and get hanging, then buy Dutchware as you feel you need.

    this is my set-up, http://www.outdoortrailgear.com/featured/dutch-flyz/ about as easy and light as it gets, scroll down to where it says "option" and it's the $24 with the flyz on zingit, you can larks head this onto both ends of your ridgeline and be done, plus it's easy off if you want to use it on another tarp

    I use something very similar to what's found in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBjsARXn94U.

    After watching it again I may make a few changes to my suspension... I like the idea of having the tarp fly on a prussic... don't know how I didn't think of/remember that...

    I also use the dutch hook a little differently. I put the dutch hook on a prussic and have a loop on the end of my line the that i hook the dutch hook onto. That way I can run the hammock suspension through the tarp suspension
    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!

    You can also use Figure 9's from Nite Ize, however I like supporting innovative guys who really care about what they are doing. Dutch is the man. Super nice, fast reply's and great customer service. I may end up ordering his tarp flyz in the near future. Not sure yet.

    I just received my "all-in-one suspension system" from him today. All I can say is, AWESOME!!! I also ordered two dutch clips. I will be using them on my tarp ridgeline as a replacement for two lightweight biners that I use.
    4g = biner
    .4g = dutch clip.

    After everything is said and done, switching out line and stuff on tarp and WB BB, I will be cutting weight by 10+ ounces! No joke, for real!

    After I switch out my sleeping pad with a HG 40 degree phoenix, I will be saving an additional 10 ounces!
