- Jun 23, 2003On my 4 day hike last week, my daughter and I slept in hammocks one
rainy night. I noticed a difference in wicking between the polypro
straps on the 2 hammocks. One hammock used the "heavy weave" straps
from OWF, the other the "tight weave" straps, which are a little
lighter. The "tight weave" soaked up water and wicked it under the
tarp, with water dripping off the liner socks tied on a drip lines.
The "heavy weave" seemed to absorb much less water and the liner sock
drip lines stayed dry. There could be some difference in how much
rain hit the 2 types of webbing because of the trees they were tied to
or some other factor. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed
different wicking properties for the different types of polypro webbing.
