DD Hammocks says
These super-strong shackles are made from 2.5mm Amsteel cord, making them the lightest and most flexible option for your hammock suspension system.
Suitable to support weight up to 125kg, these are a great addition to your Whoopie Suspension System and will save you every last gram in your pack! These soft shackle karabiners can also be used as connectors or fasteners in a variety of other camping purposes.
At only 6g a pair, these super strong shackles are great for use in lightweight hammock suspension setup, but also perfect for a range of uses that may require a karabiner. Made with 2.5mm amsteel cord, these shackles are incredibly strong and are suitable for use in suspension for anyone up to 125kg.
It's definitely worth watching the product video attached to see how they work, as I spent a good few minutes fiddling with them before I figured it out. But once you've got it you'll kick yourself for missing it in the first place.
Please note; we do not recommend these for use while climbing or mountaineering.
