A sling is a good alternative option for rigging your hammocks if you have lower attachment points or minimal need for adjustment.
Where weight and space are less of an issue Nylon is an excellent choice. The Nylon 16mm has the same strength as our Dyneema slings, but because there is physically more material they offer a curious psychological advantage. Beginners can be more comfortable using wider slings, even if the strength rating is the same.
The Nylon sling is not quite so rigid as the Dyneema and may be knotted without compromising its strength.
Always check your equipment before each use and replace periodically, or immediately if showing signs of damage or wear.
