I think the JRB straps are polyester, which would make them lighter... Personally, I like the setup from AHE with a Dutch Clip. That way my strap is attached to my hammock through the buckle. I wrap my strap around the tree, clip it with the dutch clip, and adjust. It's easier than having to thread the tri-glide...
Plus he has the straps for $0.50/ft, and sews eyes on one end...
You can use a dutch clip or carabiner, dutch clips are available from the webstore from http://www.hammockforums.net
AHE has fantastic customer service, and ships quick...
Speer's site had polyester straps really cheap, I don't know if the business change has affected that...
Best of luck,
