Hey y'all. I am a complete noob but I found a great source for webbing. strapworks.com has every kind of custom built webbing you could want and if you're going ultra-lite, their "Simple Sling" has to be checked out. I got them in patterned polyester because I'm an old ex-freak from the 60's-70's (can't call myself a hippie because I always used soap and never lived in a commune) and the tie-die and blue smoke are totally psychedelic! Their prices rival everyone else's and you can express yourself with the patterns.
Welcome Bohdi. Strapworks is already known around here for sure but there are so many new members joining everyday that is is good to keep the knowledge flowing.

Yep. Strapworks is a great source for custom web assemblys. I have used SW myself numerous times. Glad to hear that you went the polyester route, as it will save you the agony of nylon stretch.
There are a number of vendors who support HF that also supply good suspension components: AHE, JRB, TtoT Gear etc. Just a plug for our fellow hangers.

I wasn't sure where to post. I hand out in DIY more, so I put my thread there.
This thread is on a somewhat related topic, so maybe you guys can hope over and look at mine too?
Life is hard? Compared to what?
