    Grizz..... terrific info there. I started with cord and knots. Always liked them and may go back but as of late I am a webbing and cinch buckle boy. At this point don't mind a wee extra ounces and I really like the convenience and quickness at the end of a day of woods walking.
    I used the tri-glides for a time. They work well but I found them hard to un-do at times .... especially in the cold.
    Speaking of which, in the coldest of cold I often switch to descending rings as they are easier to work with my gloves on.
    I am into the epitome of laziness .... comes from all that hammock time. Just want to sway in the breeze and do some woods staring. I even like staring at my tarp stitching in my hammocky bliss.
    Good to see your Video return!
    Thanks.
    Gonna miss you on the Northern hang but sometime we will all hang again.

    Shug, thanks for mentioning that! I'm about to switch my winter netless HH suspension system, and couldn't make up my mind on which to use! I would have never thought of that one! Good timing!

    Grizz that was a very informative video feed. very well thought out and planned out. I too would be one of those who learn better by seeing it done and doing it rather than a book. I wise old man told me years ago that sitting across the table from a wise man for 10 minutes is better than a years worth of book study. I feel like when I watch the video's on here I learn much more from them then to read it on the forum not that I don't read the forums but it is much easier to do with video hence my small addiction to YouTube.

    Thanks for the video Grizz and keep them coming.

    Grizz, let me be the 29th person to thank you and congratulate you on a job well done. You've answered some questions I've always had. I always wondered how you webbing guys put up your gear. I've always used knots and cords. Now I know!
