Are the cords coming from the tree straps...
Are the cords coming from the tree straps adjustable? If so, how would they adjust? Do you have to tie knots to adjust or is it simpler than that?
They are already tied in knots that you can change up a bit if you wanted to ... But you will have a bunch of spaces between knots so you can adjust the length of the rope that you are using to set up your hammock. This kit is super simple! ENO makes slap straps that are basically daisy chains - similar concept. This is definitely better than what comes stock with most hammocks though because these include the thicker tree-protecting sock that also won't slip as easily as just paracord on tree.
The picture on this link for a similar product might give you a better idea of what you're getting with these straps from grand trunk. http://www.backcountry.com/hammock-bliss-tree-straps?rr=t
Hopefully that helps!

What material is used in the straps? Only says "synthetic"
Hey there Russ, as these are just precut lines of webbing with a fancy "tree-protecting sock" I would venture to say that the synthetic fibers are made up of something along the lines of nylon, polypropylene or polyester. Ultra high-strength webbing can sometimes include Dyneema or Kevlar, but these are probably a nylon/poly blend.
