    I ended up adding a soft shackle in between the adjustable end of the whoopie and the strap. That solved that problem for me.

    Doesn't adding a soft shackle just add another zone of friction (amsteel on amsteel)?

    Mag, that makes good sense. Also allows, IMO, for a better distribution of weight on the tree, providing you have enough webbing to go round the tree twice...720 degrees....so that the weight isn't all up against the back half of the tree, right?

    What do you do when it rains? Not only do you not have any drip break, but you pack those wet lines and webbing in with your hammock. I keep my underquilt attached to my hammock, so that is out for me.
    Personally, I prefer Dutch's setup. Solves all those problems for me. Plus, I have found it really nice to setup the suspension to the trees, then walk over and clip the ends of my hammock to them. Works much easier for me.
