      Issue: If you are tall and/or don’t want or need to sit on the Amas when hiking (aka “Ama Hiking”) then this may not affect you. However, if you are shorter you are likely to find that the standard hiking straps are too short and don’t allow you to sit on the Ama.

      Solution: Make the hiking straps adjustable by only having one end fixed, then fed through a webbing loop in the centre of the tramp and then use an adjustable length of rope to tie off the other end to the existing tramp grommets under the tramp. Then attach some shock-cord to the tied end to pull the strap taught off the tramp surface so it’s easy to get your feet underneath.

      Example: This is the system used for replacement tramps for the Hobie 16

        Like the general idea, might give it a go at some point.
