    I've been using mine now on several trips and many backyard hours. I'm 6' and 230 lbs. There have been no issues with stretch at all. They have made some nice improvements in the design of the Atlas, 15 in line loops on each strap, soooo much better than the slap straps.

    If their Polyester they should not stretch but if you have the money I would try the whoopie sling because it is lighter and if you use a bishops bag it reduces the ammount of bags you have to carry to 2 instead of three (tarp, hammock, straps). I am planing to go to whoopie very soon I will be upgrading my hammock over the winter by about 200 bucks.
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    Thanks, but whoopes aren't my style. I have been using the cinch buckle on my Blackbird for a while and love the ease of adjustment. Just wanted to see if ENO really put out the product the Atlas straps were supposed to be or not. Might grab a pair for my dayhiking/backyard hanging kit.

    Did you buy yours straight from ENO or are outfitters now carrying them?

    Im very excited about the atlas straps. I always liked the design of the slap straps, and used them frequently on short outings, but they were no good for overnight hangs. I think these poly atlas straps may be just what I'm looking for.
    with two m's, like "hammock."
