Where are 2" straps required?

It looks like Florida State Parks no longer requires 2" wide tree straps https://www.floridastateparks.org/th...now/park-rules. That was the jurisdiction I always saw referenced when the 1" vs. 2" discussion came up. Are there other agencies that require 2" straps? Is there a running list somewhere ...

Re: Cheapo Chinese Overboots And Bonus Gear Giveaway

http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab35/spacemanlee--/Hammock%20Stuff/ww_zpssncn3mce.jpg Speaking from experience, I can tell you these boots perform best when used with the matching bulletproof bracelets, and truly begin to shine when paired with the Lasso of Truth. They are a bit heavy, so to sav...

Underquilt for both gathered-end and bridge-style

I'm looking to purchase my first underquilt. I have both a WBBB XLC and Ridgerunner and enjoy using both, with a slight preference for the Ridgerunner. I really don't want to buy a separate underquilt for each type of hammock and was wondering if there was one that would work for both types with min...

Re: RBTR MEMBRANE silpoly tarp with doors on one end

Wondering how you store doors, and rig them up? I have a silpoly tarp with doors on one end and am trying to figure out what to do. When both ends of the tarp have doors, I've seen them folded under and clipped to the door on the opposite end with shock cord, leaving both doors sitting tight to the...

Is that a woobie sewn to the Costco throw or just camo fabric?

Re: Tarp seams-preferred type and seam sealing

Well, for Tarp v1.0, I decided to give the flat-felled/french hybrid a try. It didn't come out as well as my trial runs, so I'll definitely be flipping it over so the "back" of the felled seam is on the outside of the tarp. That side came out ok. http://i847.photobucket.com/albums/ab35/spacemanlee--...

Re: Tarp seams-preferred type and seam sealing

Thanks, V_Allen. I was hoping nobody would scrutinize the stitching as it was done really quick without any tension adjustments just so I could get some photos. I'm still trying to dial it in for the new SilPoly but am getting more puckering than I would like. It worked pretty well on this fabric th...

Re: Sams Club Vest

Costco currently has men's down vests for $17 or $18 as well as women's down jackets. Crossing my fingers that men's down jackets come in soon.
