    I think Omega Pacific is the one making the mad rock carabiners, least they look like OP carabiners. They would work fine, but the offer from Dutch would be a good way to go as well. And you would probably have the only Dutch clips in South America

    $15 is for the pair (and that price inlcudes all imaginable fees). If they are good biners, I think its a great deal considering that good quality camping-climbing gear prices get almost quadrupled here, specially if brought form the US.

    Regarding the Paypal... I have two bank accounts, but they are both colombian banks and from what I understand PayPal only accepts to register US bank accounts.
    If I could register any of my two accounts with PayPal, not only would I get the dutch clips... id also get a BlackBird, id join the buff group buy, KAQ... oh lord... all the thing id begin buying...

    You may have to double check on this but I just googled PayPal International and under "send money" they did have Colombia listed. Don't know if it offers all the options like bank account transfers, and looks like you have to set up the account to find out but--maybe. I have done a number of transactions with international buyers from all over so there has to be some sort of option.

    Ahhh, I missed that caveat in your earlier post. Yeah, 7.50 isn't unusual for a biner.

    I can use creditcards from colombian banks, but Ive been cheking all over the net, and tried setting up the bank account option with no luck of using a colombian bank.... but i understand, most colombians (including me) dont trust colombian banks...

    Thanks for the tip, though, pgibson.

    the biners take off half the strain on the webbing right.

    Awesome! The biners make the setup in my room so much easier. As soon as I got them, I fiddled with the suspension for about two hours to find the best higher-foot-end/lower-head-end configuration for my room.
    Since then (las Monday's night) I haven't had to shorten or lengthen the suspension one bit... I can take the hammock down in the morning, store it, at night take it out and just clip the biners on to the wall's supports and that's it! the hammock is just as it was before.
    Only complain is that I thought the biners would be a bit smaller.

    I'm sure if you searched around you could find something similar, and maybe even for cheaper. But I know Ed and I'd rather give my money to him than to some big discount company who doesn't care about hammockers...that's one of the reasons I haven't bothered to search for a better deal. YMMV.
    It is now polyester and 8 ounces for 30 feet. As of 02-17-2010.

    hanger on.

    About using the ring buckle straps without the carabiners:

    That's what I did for this hike.

    The loop is easy to fasten around any reasonable sized tree and you save the weight of the carabiners.

    but, you do have to rethread the buckles each time. That's a bit of a pain.

    Hi All,

    Is it bad to keep this thread going?

    I use the webbing /ring buckle but i also use a marlin spike aswell.

    until i figure out how to post pics, imagine a slippery double sheets bend of 1m webing from the body of hammock. marlin spike that to larkshead to ring buckles and webbing.

    This eliminates me having to thread the buckles when not using biners and also.....

    WHEN I CRANK THE SUPPORTS TIGHT, i can release it without a problem.
    (sorry i read something about 300 pages back about problems with CC buckles and ring buckles when under a lot of tension)
