Our standard Ultralight Tree Straps may be the lightest (by a fair margin we might add..) but sometimes you need a little more webbing to get around those gorgeous giant trees. For just such an occasion we made the Ultralight Tree Straps+! With an extra 5 feet (1.5 m) of webbing on each strap and crazy strong 1 inch Dyneema webbing, these longer hammock straps have got your back on those tricky hangs. Button Links are not required to use these Tree Straps. Just like the original, these straps are designed by an FAA-certified parachute rigger using real, certified parachute materials.
Size E bonded nylon thread is the industry standard for parachutes. It's a very robust thread that has been specifically matched to the parachute fabric and webbing we use on our hammocks and tree straps./p>
All of our gear is also sewn using ball-point needles. These needles gently guide webbing fibers out of the way of the thread rather than tearing or piercing, keeping as much of the material's original strength as is possible./p>
Our whoopie sling system uses the same mechanical concept as a Chinese Finger Trap to provide a system that is easy and quick to adjust during setup, but instantly locks up when weight is applied.
Adjustment is as easy as pulling a string. To lengthen the tree strap, simply pull on the loop. To shorten the tree strap, simply pull on the knotted string.
Thin straps or ropes can damage tree bark by applying too much pressure on a small area of the tree. Our Ultralight Tree Straps keep the load spread across a larger surface area, protecting all those wonderful trees we need to keep on hanging!
Using thin and light, yet incredibly strong 1-inch Dyneema webbing allows us to produce a very small packing and lightweight strap while maintaining the industry-accepted safe tree strap width of 1 inch.
The lightest straps around, but also the smallest packing.
Both straps together barely measure up to a typical candy bar and at 1.55 ounces, weigh even less.
