In this video I show a very simple and cheap way to hang your hammock. This is the same method I have used for years now. This is a very affordable and lightweight solution for those just getting into the hammock camping world. With just a couple of heavy duty nylon webbing straps you can make your own hanging solution that will make your hammock camping setup super easy. The nice thing about this method is that the straps you end up making will most likely fit right in to your hammock bag. The straps can also be used in other ways as well. I have used these straps as improvised waist straps and well as lashing straps to tie additional gear to my pack.
Here are the straps I used in the video.
These straps have a tensile strength of 3,500lbs, so your hammock will break before these do.
