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.
 

 
We stock pre-made Whoopie Slings – however if you're interested in making your own or would like amsteel for another purpose, 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.
