The DD Hammocks Amsteel 2.5mm is a super light and extra strong cord that can be used for a wide range of activities from camping to kayaking. You can even use it to make your own lightweight hammock suspension system. 

DD Hammocks says

Amsteel (Dyneema cord) is great for a range of purposes such as hammock camping and kayaking, but perhaps most widely known for its use in making whoopie slings – a lightweight hammock suspension solution.

When made into whoopie slings, this is a fantastic modification for anyone looking to reduce the pack weight of their hammock.

 

Our Verdict

We stock pre-made Whoopie Slings – however if you're interested in making your own or would like amsteel for another purpose, then you can purchase it here by the metre. This rope is as strong as wire but a fraction of the weight, and is also very resistant to abrasion.
