We carry all that stuff in our pockets for when we really need it, and if you can save 20% in strength, why not? Now having said that, i have all my gear in water knots as well, but the discussion regarding the sewn webbing makes me think...

    I don't know, anyone else out there on the same wavelength, or am I in over my head here?
    So let me see if I have this right...You rebut my "So what" by claiming shock loading, then turn around and say you do exactly as I do. Um, yeah, Gotcha!

    You didn't get anything brotha, but maybe the idea that the percentage decrease becomes a little more relevant is something to pay attention to when you use your webbing for something other than hoisting a tool, like an anchor for a rope system. Just something to think about, we should all be open to constantly re-evaluating the way we operate in the fire service.
