    Dogbones to biner, that OK?

    Hey all, newbie here. Is it OK to attach the dogbones of my bridge hammock directly to a biner? Pic attached.

    Previously the dogbones were attached to a continuous loop.

    Thanks!...

    When I ordered my new hammock, I got a full length 20F Lynx for the WB Ridgerunner. Is 20F that right temp rating for most situations?
