Woma Ultralight Tree Straps (pair)
$24.00Add to wish list
Named after the woma python (Aspidites ramsayi), also known commonly as Ramsay's python, the sand python and simply the woma, it is a species of snake in the family Pythonidae. The species is endemic to Australia. Once common throughout Western Australia, it has become critically endangered in some regions (Wikipedia).
The Woma ultralight tree straps are made from UHMWPE, one of the strongest fibres available. This webbing is incredibly strong, durable, lightweight and packs down incredibly small. Weighing just 5 g/m with a tensile strength of over 690kg the webbing is ideal to use for hammock suspension as tree straps with whoopie slings or as an all in one suspension system using a Beckett Hitch or J-Bend.
For those looking to shave weight from their hammock suspension these are the straps for you.
Please note this webbing is quite thin, like ribbon, and so is not recommended for use in buckles. It will also have a tendency to fold over on itself and will require flattening out by running your thumb and forefinger along it after use especially if you have tied a Beckett Hitch or J-Bend.
Recommended maximum weight is 150kg
There is an option to add a pair of soft shackles made from Australian made UHMWPE rope. These replace a metal carabiner and can be useful to attach the tree strap without having to pull it through it's own loop to secure it to the tree. Weight of a single soft shackle is 5.5g.
