Light, knot-free alternative to hammock webbing

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.








2 x 1.8m Whoopie Slings

  • 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.

Recommended accessories:

  • SuperLight Karabiners
  • DD Tree Huggers

Suspension gear

  • Please use only with DD products, and do not exceed the 125kg weight limit.

General care

  • To preserve the strength of the material, avoid folding along the same lines too frequently (change after 10 times)
  • Store in a cool, dry, dark place
  • 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
  • Do not machine wash. Clean carefully by hand only, using lukewarm water
  • Prolonged exposure to strong UV light can cause material to weaken (UV degradation is excluded from warranty)
