    if you get 2 biners, you can put them in those webbing loops, and you just clip the webbing around the tree, rather than taking the webbing out of the buckles, and then threading them back on. this is what most folks do.
    I hadn't even thought of using the non-biner technique, probably since I am used to having biners. But I'm thinking when I first set up, I didn't have my biners handy ( on another hammock in a sack) so I just did a Speer type wrap, or a round turn with half hitch, can't remember. But disconnecting from the triangle buckles might come in handy when packing up, if the webbing was soaked.

    Anyway, question: with that first non-biner technique you list: no wear worries from webbing on webbing contact and friction through the loop? It might save a few oz to go without biners, and that actually doessn't sound all that inconvenient.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    no different than how i use tree straps. there is no real movement on the webbing in that spot. i would keep an eye on it, but i've not noticed any signifigant wear from doing it like that.
