    I have the good fortune of knowing the maintainer for that shelter. So I went to the expert. There IS a bear box there. There are no bear cables anymore, as a falling tree took them out.

    "It's all about the money" may be the easy answer, but like most easy answers to complex problems, it is a wrong answer. Bear boxes work well where they exist, but it would be impractical or even...

    Rather than longer straps, you could use an Amsteel dogbone (a loop at each end) of whatever length you desire. Lighter than Amsteel, and you can use it for many other things if not needed to hang.
