    • 2 x 2m Tree Huggers - bark-friendly straps allowing the whoopie slings to be connected safely to the tree

      General care
      • Always ensure your gear (including any cordage) is completely dry before storing away
        • Avoid prolonged exposure to extreme temperatures (above 40C and below -15C), and keep your gear at least a 2m distance from flames

          DD Whoopie Slings:

          A pair of our ready-made Whoopie Slings provide the lightest and most compact suspension for your hammock! Upgrade your hammock webbing to these high-strength slings to make it even easier to alter the height and angle of your hang.
          A fantastic modification for anyone looking to reduce the pack weight of their hammock.
          Specifications:
          • 2 x 1.8m Whoopie Slings in 2.5mm Amsteel rope
            • Compatible with all DD hammocks – weight limit 125kg

              What is Amsteel?

              • Made from Dyneema SK75 with Samthane Coating - very hard wearing

              • 8-strand single braid construction

              • Size for size same strength as wire rope, yet only 1/7 of the weight: outlasts wire rope in tests

              • Flexible, easy to handle and easily field spliced


              Avoid direct contact with trees: this can damage the tree. We recommend connecting your slings to trees using our Tree Hugger straps.
              Suspension gear: Please use only with DD products, and do not exceed the 125kg weight limit.

              Hammock / Climbing Karabiners:

              These light and super-strong karabiners, made by UK climbing specialists DMM, are perfect for your hammock suspension system. In fact, they can be safely and securely put to a whole host of camping uses.

              Don't fancy untying knots?

              Use with our Tree Huggers and you'll be able to unclip your hammock from trees very quickly.
              The design of these karabiners means they also act as a drip-stop, preventing water running down towards your hammock from your suspension cord. Secure quick-release latches mean you can expect to set up your gear with them in no time.
              • Karabiners made by DMM: 24kN strength with gate closed; 10kN strength with gate open.
              DD Tree Huggers:

              Designed to grip – but not damage - the tree, our Tree Hugger straps are wrapped around the tree as many times as required and have two end loops onto which you can clip your whoopie slings.


              DD Tree Huggers are available in the following sizes:

              • Regular (2m long x 2cm wide)
              • 3 Metres (3m long x 4cm wide)
              • XL (2m long x 4cm wide)
              • Weight limit: 125kg.

              Please use for one person at a time, and with a DD hammock only.

              Connect both loops to Whoopie Slings using either our metal or soft-shackle karabiners – friction from direct contact with the slings can damage the Tree Huggers. Not suitable for marlin spike hitch set-ups. Please follow instructions provided.

              Superlight Karabiners x2:

              These karabiners are mightier than they appear – weighing in at a tiny 8g, but capable of supporting up to 400kg in weight. Part of our SuperLight range, these will create next to no extra packing weight - so you can take them anywhere, and rely on them for just about anything.

              The design of the DD SuperLight Karabiners means they also act as a drip-stop, preventing water running down towards your hammock from your suspension cord. Secure quick-release latches mean you can expect to set up your gear with them in no time. Please make sure the 'gate' is closed when using - failure to do so can damage/break the karabiner.
              Tested to support up to 400kg

              DD Soft Shackle Karabiners:

              At barely 5g each (or 10g for the XL size), 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.

              Regular Size:
              • 9cm long (closed)
                • 26cm long (open)

                • 15cm long (closed)

                  Amsteel 2.5mm Superlight:


                  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.

                  • Dark grey 2.5mm Amsteel rope: purchase by the metre (orders up to 182m long are sent as a single length, which can be cut as required).

                    This handy cord is ideal for a number of uses, especially for bungee guy lines - a great flexible alternative to standard guy rope.
