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.
1m long, 2.5mm diameter
5g per metre
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).
If made into whoopie slings, is 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
