"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
— John Muir
I agree with the 'set-up speed and convince' argument. That's what you will gain if using carabineers. However, if I were a gram counter or diehard do-withouter, I'd nix the carabineers... They are just another thing that takes up space, needs to be watched and maintained, and adds a weight cost.
So this isn't "gram counter" philosophy, but I like the weight of the carabiner to help me fling the tree strap around larger trees. Fling with one hand and catch with the other.
Yes you are right
Some count grams
Some count seconds
Some count pennies
When it's really cold and your fingers don't want to work carbineers are quick and easy.
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)
