Hiking straps

Inlägg av mauri »

Hi! Any measure or dinghy-type with equivalent size to get appropriate hiking straps (to hold the feet while leaning out) like the ones in the last photo here in the link? /thanks!

I bought some meters of strap material and brass eyelets in a boat hardware store and made my own according to my taste. It's not that difficult.

Tip: Fold the ends over so the eyelets sit in double strap material.

Thanks!
I sewed my own ones with 88 cm (front) and 47 cm (rear) padded belts (breaking load 225 kg) but i went for stainless pad-eyes and stainless eye-bolts/eye-nuts M6. Brass eyelets might have been interesting, I did not found them.
It is a great pleasure to lean out using the hiking straps!
