    Have always put the whole set-up in the stretch pocket on the outside of my pack--thinking a mesh snake skin could help the tarp dry some while I hike. I've been very pleased with hammock gear

    Same here...Ohm 2.0 backpack...tarp goes in the skins, then crammed into the mesh pocket on the outside. It's amazing how much you can stuff in the mesh pocket!

    When taking down, I remove one side from the tree and roll tightly into a "snail". That results in a small round roll that I put in the side/bottle pocket of my Zimmerbuilt Quickstep. FYI, I use cuben snakeskins.

    I just received a Zimmerbuilt Quickstep. I have a zpacks CF tarp and the HG skake skin. Is this similar to your setup?ZimmerBuilt QuickPack.jpg

    I always thought of snake skins as a stuff sack in and of themselves. However, I do about half and half, sometimes with stuff sack and sometimes without. When I do use both I look over my shoulder to make sure there's nobody peeking around a tree to make fun of the dumb guy using, what is in essence, two stuff sacks for one item.

    I usually take the tarp in the skins and fold it in half, and in half again. I wrap the lines around and around, making a shape roughly the size and shape of a tennis ball can. (maybe slightly bigger). That cylinder shape fits well in the side pocket of my Ohm, under the tie down cords.

    Hank Scorpio: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks!
