    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.

Love this set up because of no worries when the tarp is wet. It also balances out the pack.

    gbolt, So you do not put it in the side pocket of the OHM?

    It wont fit in the OHM mesh pocket or the side pockets.

    I think I have to much outward pressure from the inside.

    I am thinking about using the Zpacks lid just for the tarp.

    No, A water bottle and water filtration kit go in the pocket, the Palace Tarp goes above those items strapped in the yellow Zing-it Cinch Rope. I also will clip the Dutch Stinger to one of the Cords to insure I drag it if it slips out; however that has never occurred, knock on wood. I hooked the drawstring of the stuff sac previously. The only bad part of this is that the Z Packs tent stake sac has to be stored separately and is usually in the mesh backing for now. I have thought about the pocket but worry about losing it as well. Maybe thatís a new thread lol.

I'm leaning towards the stuff sack option, but curious how you more experienced folk are doing it.

    Thanks for any input.
    Late to this party. My tarp is in a single mesh skin, and then I use a large double-ended stuffsack, and strap it to the top of my Circuit using the strap there. The stuffsack is to prevent the mesh from tearing when I pass under low-hanging brush or crawl under blow-downs and etc.
