Carabiners were designed for climbing, not hammocking. Shouldn’t your suspension use hardware that was specifically designed for hangin’ hammocks? The Dutch ZipLine tree straps use specially designed hardware from DutchWare Gear, a small gear supplier and leader in hammock suspension innovation for a quicker, more secure and lighter weight suspension.
These are the easiest, lightest tree friendly straps available anywhere
The Dutch ZipLine uses the Titanium DutchClip to sling the tree, meaning no more threading the strap through a loop. But, if that’s your thing or the tree is a funny size, the ZipLine strap has a backup loop for a traditional girth hitch. The advantage of the DutchClip is that now the suspension can be left on the hammock, which translates into less time between you standing and you hanging.
The Dutch ZipLine connects the hammock via the Dutch Cinch buckle, an auto-locking sliding buckle that allows continuous adjustment along the full length of webbing. This saves you the mental anguish of having to decide which loop to clip and cuts down on running back and forth to get that hang just right.
Just like the Tree’s Best Friend straps, the Dutch ZipLine has a fatty 2″ section of webbing on the tree side to reduce suspension abrasion on the bark and keep those trees around for many hammocks to come.
The standard “East Coast” strap is 12 ft long and has 9 ft. of adjustable length for the hammock. All this weighs in at 5 oz. and is small enough to stuff inside your hammock stuff sack for a grab-and-go teal package. “West Coast” length is available as an upgrade and has a bigger tree hugger strap section and longer adjustable length, for a total length of 18 ft at a weight of 8 oz.
If purchased alone (not in combination with a DSM hammock) we will include two webbing dog bones, suspension loops that can be easily installed on most end-gather hammocks. They include a permanently sewn DutchCinch to interface with the straps, though a carabiner or hook can still be used with the modified loops.
