Just thought I'd share some specs and, also, some pics I took from my first hang. It was a joyous day.
Here's the weight of my basic setup...
Hammock - 262 g
Carabiners - 56 g (28 g each)
Rope - 72 g (36 g each)
Lashing [Tree] Straps - ??? They don't come off the tree.
TOTAL - 390 g = 13.8 oz
I also picked up a cheap camo tarp (5.5' x 7.5'), which only weighs 450 g, which is just under a pound. Unfortunately, I think I'm gonna have to use this as a ground sheet if anything at all. Ordered a 12'x12' for some REAL camping. Should be a few ounces under two pounds.
And the tulle that I'm using for a bug sock shouldn't be but a few ounces.
Overall, I should be able to get EVERYTHING down to about 2.5 pounds when I replace everything with amsteel.
Ahh... My first hang...
