I purchased my original straps as part of my suspension system for my single plus. I ended up detaching them from the whoopie slings and using them as 15' straps with a marlin spike hitch. They worked so well, I began using them for all my hammocks. While my original straps are going strong, I am thru hiking the PCT this year with my Hummingbird Long and wanted a spare set just in case. They are light enough I can easily carry these as backups. Definitely recommend them for any of your hanging needs.
