New site for all your strap needs? (tree straps)
I ran across this site looking for webbing today for some DIY tree straps. They sell pre-sewn straps at what I thought were pretty reasonable prices for all of us "non-thread injector" types...
It might even be a place we could do a group buy from with some custom Hammock Forums logo-ing on in the future to support the site?
Here's the link to the sewn straps:
*BTW - I am in no way affiliated with this site, just a random find while perusing the interwebs. I've never ordered from them, and don't know about quality or customer service. The "about" page seems like it's a pretty legit mom-and-pop operation though. There's even a small blurb about hammocking in their blog.

That is where I got my straps but did the sowing myself. They have a ton of options for type, color or pattern of straps. If you look around on Facebook, retailmenot.com or get their news letter you can get codes for 5% or more off your order.

I've used StrapWorks before too.
Total thumbs up!!!
They helped me out a lot and it's not like I was making a giant order.
Based on my experience with them, I heartily endorse StrapWorks!
So many trees, so little time...
We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
His friends and merry men are we;
And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
We burrow in the cypress tree.
The turfy hammock is our bed,
Our home is in the red deer's den,
Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
For we are wild and hunted men.

My go-to site for tree straps, or any other straps (like canoe straps to hold it on my car).

Man very nice ! Good researching!
High ground is dry ground!
If I remember correctly Strapworks has a member presence on the forum. I've used them for years.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
