    Doing some research and I came across this site that has lots of great info on making soft shackles, including a calculator.

    Demostix has been pointing this site out repeatedly for a while. Some solid science to be found here.

    But folks tend to ignore him
    (sorry Demostix, could not resist, I'm needing to go to confession anyway)

    You get folks' attention though, so it's good for you to bring it to the surface.

    I've made two different kinds of soft shakles that were featured on that site and have been using them in place of my regular carabiners on my tree straps. They work well and help cut a few grams.
