    See my suspension weight thread, it gives a pretty good look at the differences when it comes to weight.

    For me I went from webbing to whoopies, (thinking that I would save weight) but the frustration level of using them, made me turn back to webbing within in a year.

    As far as a trees here in the PNW I ordered a "custom" set from Brandon at WB I asked him to make me some 20footers, and they work great. Haven't had an issue yet...Some times I do carry and "extender" kit which are 2 6ft whoopies, which I can use as part of the tree strap system so that the webbing can still go through the buckles.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    I'll be putting the srs suspension on my new hammock I hope to finish tomorrow. 5-6ft straps are good for most places I'll be, if I can't hang from one tree because the tree is too wide, well... move to the next one, another great thing bout hammocks, almost unlimited spots to 'pitch'.
