      i like it. sounds like it will give somewhat simalar effects as the thing brian & i have both done w/ short strips of webbing...forming a waterproof blocking point on the strap that water has no choice but change directions. let us know how well the silicon keeps the rubber glued to the webbing w/ packing & unpacking. ...tim

      Here's my latest "water blocker" idea for my hammock straps. It's working
      very well so far.
      I cut apart an inner tube, and made two discs about 2.5" in diameter
      each. I cut a slot in each one, and
      slid one over each hanging strap. I ran a thin bead of silicone on each
      side of the disc along both sides of the strap.
      This may not be absolutely necessary, but I wanted to rule out any
      possibility of wicking. So far they are blocking
      any water I can make run down the straps, and they weigh practically
      nothing (less than 1/2 oz total). Long term test when I get back from
      Oregon this week (I know - Oregon is the perfect place to test the idea,
      but work will be getting in the way of that).
