    Note: Ultimate Hammocks is planning to release a larger/wider version that is projected to be 4 oz (113 g) with a breaking strength of 1600 lbs (726 kg).

    Do you mean 4 OZ heavier?

    • Derek says:

      No, the bigger straps will weigh a total of 4 oz, which is just under twice the weight of the lighter straps.

    I saw these on kickstarter and wasn’t impressed. Sadly, I still feel the same way. I use bull line or mule tape with a super secret protector for the tree (sticks!!!!) and I come off lighter, at 1/12th the cost and I have more adjustability. Maybe I should just package my system up and sell it. Ha! Still, great review. What system do you use?

    • Derek says:

      Bull Line is great! We use that or mule tape with the scouts. Hard to beat the price when the local power company donated a used roll. I believe that these daisy chain straps in general are one of the best options for new or inexperienced hangers because there is no knot to tie wrong or forget and adjustment is straightforward. For us veterans, well, it’s fun to rig you gear however suits you 🙂

    Are they thin enough to use Marlin Spike hitches and toggles?

    • Derek says:

      I suppose you could, but it seems like a waste for these straps. Marlinspike is designed to place a toggle along a long length of rope or webbing, but the Ultimate Straps already have clip points sewn in.
