Well, my heavily pregnant wife and I took our dogs to the woods this evening; I thoughtfully packed a folding chair for her and, at the last minute grabbed a scrap length of 1.4oz rips top nylon as a rudimentary hammock chair.
I tie an overhand knot in each end and larks footed my tree straps directly to the nylon inside the knots. As I sat there, swinging back and fore a bit, there was a rip and I found myself on the floor on my back! The fabric had ripped half through right next to the larks foot knot on one side and I had flipped off the remaining material.
I am 200lb (100kg) so I guess 1.4oz is too lightweight for me to be swaying on. I might not be quite so blasť next time!image.jpg
