The Alton Goods Ultralight Whoopie Suspension System is the most adjustable suspension system we offer, with a hang range of between 45cm and 365cm. This system is comprised of two sets of 180cm UHMWPE Tree Hugger Straps that have been connected to Dyneema® Whoopie Slings. The bark friendly UHMWPE Tree Hugger Straps are designed to be wrapped around the tree as many times as required. The attached Whoopie Slings are a simple adjustable loop system that can then be used to easily adjust the height of you hammock without removing the straps from the trees.
Constructed from two of the world's strongest fibers (Dyneema® and UHMWPE), this system is ultralight at only 80 grams. It is also incredibly strong and more abrasion, friction and impact resistant other nylon systems. The Ultralight Whoopie Sling System is a the ultimate hammock suspension option and has been designed for anyone looking to reduce pack weight and maximise adjustability.
HIGHLY ADJUSTABLE: This is most adjustable hammock suspension system we offer with a hang range of between 45cm and 365cm.
ROBUST & DURABLE: By using Dyneema® and UHMWPE, we have been able to produce an incredibly high level of strength and durability at a very low weight. Testing has shown that Dyneema® possesses the same strength as wire rope at only one seventh of the weight. We have also bolstered the durability, of the UHMWPE Tree Hugger Straps by using an ultra-tight weave and solution dyed yarn. This construction process increases resistance to corrosion, abrasion, friction, impact, extreme temperature and UV exposure.
ULTRALIGHT: The high strength-to-weight ratio of both Dyneema®and UHMWPEhas allowed us to construct a highly adjustable suspension system that weighs in at only 80 grams. This is truly ultralight given its relative durability and high breaking strength.
NON-STRETCH: Dyneema® and UHMWPE are static meaning that they will not stretch when placed under stress. Therefore, when used in a hammock suspension system, the Whoopie Slings and Tree Hugger Straps will not stretch which ultimately prevents sagging and the need for ongoing adjustment.
EASY TO USE: Our Ultralight Whoopie Suspension System is incredibly simple to use. The Whoopie Sling itself includes a bead on the adjustable loop to ensure that it isn't pulled in on itself and another bead to indicate the adjustable rope that must be pulled to alter the height of your hammock.
SUPERIOR QUALITY: This Ultralight Whoopie Suspension System continues to be tested by our team in Australia and each set is individually inspected prior to dispatch allowing us to maintain the highest level of quality.
5 YEAR WARRANTY:Our Ultralight Whoopie Suspension System has been constructed with an overarching focus on quality and longevity. It has been developed by hikers for hikers and tested by our team of experts in Australia in Australian conditions. We are so confident of its capabilities that we offer no questions asked, 5 year guarantee on build quality and performance.

I’ve been wanting to try whoopie slings for a while now but couldn’t find a good set in Aus. Was pretty chuffed to see Alton Goods had some. Awesome quality and best customer service experience to date. Cheers.
