Re: Texas State Parks and 2 inch straps

VERY WELL SAID! I am not a Texas hanger but did have to cancel a personal trip last year in another state after speaking to a ranger and being told that my Hammock was a no go.

Re: First hang with Whoopies

All good, I use 7/64 because I have an 800 ft spool of it. I just wanted to point out that if 7/64 is easier to find, which I think was implied at the beginning, it is totally adequate for all but the very largest hangers.

First hang with Whoopies

I do lots of splicing and have been hanging on 7/64 for going on 5 years without issue. I'm 6'4" 250 lbs [emoji41]

If anyone is interested the rating of 7/64 Amsteel is 1600 lbs:

Re: Helinox Camp Chair at Walmart

It is a pretty good buy. We have both. I would be VERY hesitant to use the Walmart version if you weigh more than 150. Ours buckled quickly with a 200+ occupant.

Re: Mission for Sil Nylon to make gear quilt

+1 to SCUBA's comment. RSBTR is great. I have also ordered quite a bit from DutchWareGear.com too.
