    Default webbing

    What are you guys using for webbing? I have about a 10 foot piece tied in a loop with 2 carabiners.

    mines only about 6' and one carabiners. I have thought about shorting as this long length tends to get in the way.

    I carry a 12' of 1" tubular tied in a loop with a water knot. Its just long enough so that if I needed to I can make a harness if I ever needed to.

    I can't remember exactly for some reason, must be tired. (shame on me!) But, I have 16ft-ish of webbing tied into a loop with a water knot that has a 'biner clipped to it and then it's rolled up nice and tight and stored in a medical glove to help keep it clean and untangled.

    exactly what i use.


    it is useful for dragging victims (if not lifted) and also moving heavy items in overhaul. pretty much whenever you need to pull on something. it is better longer and wrap up the excess that having it short and wishing you could have it longer.

    25ft of webbing tied in a loop, rolled and stored in a glove.

    I have found it most useful for flapping back and securing car roofs as well as dragging people, though we don't do much of that outside of drills.

    25ft is a lot, but I haven't found it to be cumbersome even if I am only using a few feet. I just double it or wrap the excess around an object or my hand if I am dragging something/someone.
