Bunched horizontal pass:

gather the fabric (‘bunch’ it) – the fabric goes over both legs, over the first pass(es) to keep the seat in place

You will use this for ‘tied at shoulder’ carries

1-bunchedpass

Bunched crosspass / legpass

Gather the fabric (‘bunch’ it), this pass goes over one leg (over the fabric of the seat) and under the opposite leg

With 2 bunched crosspasses you will create an -X- over the seat which will help you secure the seat.

Used for: FWCC, Double Hammock and many other carries with a long wrap
1-legpass
