The simplest method is to wrap the strap around the tree and pull through existing loop on end of strap. Alternative methods include Dutch Clips or carabiners that can be attached to the loop. Once the strap is wrapped around the tree you can quickly secure the other to it without pulling all the webbing through the loop.

The Pup tent from DutchWare can be set up 2 ways. First, you can affix the peak of the pup tent to your hammock suspension and stake out the 3 corners. This option is lightweight and easy to achieve. The 2nd option is to use our pole system designed for the pup tent. This allows for a free standing tent by placing the poles around the tent and separating them out.

This certainly depends on which hammock stand you have but most hammock stands are designed to be outdoors. Most stands are made from some type of metal that is coated to prevent rust.

There are 2 main types of ridgelines for tarps, continuous or separated. A continuous ridgeline is 1 continuous piece of cord that runs from tree to tree. Your tarp is attached to the cord by prusik knots or some type of hardware. You can hang your tarp over the top or underneath of the continuous ridgeline depending on your personal preference. A separated ridgeline is a cordage that attaches to both ends of the tarp and around the tree. You can use specialized hardware, carabines or just knots to attach the cord to the tarp. Once the cord is attached to the tarp it goes around the tree and is attached back to itself using knots or hardware.
