    5 out of 5 Fantastic Product

    I bought the straps, whoopie sling and dutch carabiner a week ago and thanks to super fast shipping was able to test it this last weekend. It worked like a charm, saved quite a bit on weight and was easier to set up than the system that came with my hammock. Great product, already recommended it to two of my friends to buy! Absolutely worth it!

    I want to amend my previous question…

    For straps w/o attachments, is this the lightest per gram per foot? If not, can you provide a list of which straps you sell that are the lightest?

      No, the spider web 2.0 and 1.5 will be lighter than the UHMWPE webbing.

    Question

    tysonrapier

    In response to one of the comments below, you stated this webbing does not react well to metal hardware…Does this include sewn in Dutch clips? Also, would you advise the same for Spider Web 2.0, considering they are both UHMWPE straps?

      You would be able to use the dutch clips with the webbing. It is specifically any kind of metal buckle that you would not be able to use with the webbing that will slip if it is a point of supporting your weight.

      It is water resistant and will fair well in the elements. These strap do not work well with metal hardware. I would recommend using a marlin spike hitch with a toggle instead.

  10. John Mury

    Question

    John Mury

    I know this isn’t supposed to work with buckles, but will it work with spiders? It seems like the amsteel loop could create a lot of direct pressure on the strap.

    If not spiders, then what? A becket hitch? Marlin spike? What are the options? Thank you!

      No I would not recommend the spider with this webbing. Yes using the marlin spike hitch or the becket hitch would be good or to possibly larks head it.

      It will have less stretch and will be more durable in regards to abrasion.

  15. Rich Bargerhuff

    Question

    Rich Bargerhuff

    Under UHMWPE Straps and Huggers and the selection “TYPE”, hugger is said to have a loop on only one end, and strap is said to have loops on both ends. Believe that is the opposite of what it should say.
