    Camo Suspension Straps

    Picked up a 150ft roll of this polyester webbing on EBay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-Inch-50yds...item35c0834432.
    With shipping it came to just under $25 or $0.17 a foot. Got the roll as I need to replace some suspension straps on a couple of hammocks that are starting to show some wear and tear plus I have a couple of new DIY hammocks that after trying Whoopies on them decided to go back to the straps.

    Specifications: (from sellers EBay site)
    •Made with 100% Polyester
    •1" wide
    •Approximately .043" or 1.11mm thick
    •1200lbs tensile strength
    •Melting point of 500 degrees Fahrenheit
    •Rot and mildew resistance
    •UV Resistant
    •Moisture Resistant


    Has camo on one side and a solid tan color on the other side. Very stiff.

    Made two 14 ft long suspension straps for a DIY hammock. Sewed Dutch Clips to the end loops and have not decided if I will use Dutch Gear Cinch Buckles or Arrowhead Cinch Buckles (same name but they are different). May use one of each to see which works better. I am kinda of partial to the Arrowhead Cinch Buckles as I have been using them for several years on my BB's and a couple of other hammocks.

    That's pretty cool looking.

    Any idea on the weight?

    Looks like the same stuff I bought awhile ago. Been holding great. It is heavier / thicker than what I was using. But that is a good thing, as the other straps were thin, and kind of worried me......RR

    I used the same stuff on my first hang, then decided it was way too heavy for backpacking and picked up some lighter straps from Harbor Freight. I still use them when I'm car camping, though.
