Hammock camping–one of the most comfortable ways to enjoy a long-distance thru-hike, a weekend backpacking trip, or just an overnight in the woods. With more than 200 illustrations to guide you, this book helps you get off the ground to discover the freedom, comfort, and convenience of hammock camping. Learn how to set up and use a hammock to stay dry, warm, and bug free in a Leave No Trace-friendly way. This book covers hammock camping basics such as how to get a perfect hang and how to stay dry, warm, and bug free. Plus, it illustrates techniques and tips to get the most out of a hammock shelter, whether you have purchased an all-in-one kit or you’ve assembled your own customized system.
Two 10’ straps of 1/2″ MULETAPE®. Oh, how we love MULETAPE®. So, much so that we don’t even mind that you can’t get it in any color but white. We knew it had to be a part of our QuickSilver Hammock System no matter what. This 1250 lb. test material is made of lubricated low stretch polyester. The MULETAPE® joins to the QuickSilver Hammock loops with a quick, simple and secure Becket Hitch knot. This knot is a cinch to tie, allows fine adjustments to be made with ease and tears down with just a tug. We’ve tested this knot in wet, cold and hot conditions. It holds strong and does not slip. And no hardware means zero weight added and fewer opportunities for hardware failure leaving you on the ground in the middle of the night.
A word about proper usage: We recommend using tree straps (or, tree huggers) that are, at minimum, 1 inch wide. This is good practice for protecting the trees we hang from. Furthermore, it should be noted that MuleTape has a loose weave and it will snag on tree bark. For these reasons, we do not recommend it for use without tree straps.
Use with our Polyester Tree Straps.
