    ENO Underbelly Gear Sling ???

    Newbie here. I was just curious, does anybody use the ENO Underbelly Gear Sling (or similar product from other manufacture) for gear or pack storage? It seems like a decent idea to keep your gear or pack off the ground, but didn't know if it was practical and was curious if anybody actually ever uses something like this or not. If not, do you have a preferred method of keeping your pack off the ground? Thanks!

    I'm not sure about the ENO labeled sling but a lot of us use one of the cottage vendors sling/chair like this one from Dutch:

    A lot of folks use our Bushman Hammock chair, the original hammock chair as a gear sling at night and comfortable sitting, lounge hammock during the day.

    I've got the ENO gear sling --- and have used it not so much to keep my pack off the ground but to keep items like my Kindle, glasses case, waterbottle, socks, etc. within easy reach from the inside the hammock and inside my bugnet. Previously I was trying to keep all of this stuff in the hammock with me --- which was a royal pain.
    In hindsight - I'd probably opt for the sling/chair from dutch or a hammock chair instead - as it would serve more than one purpose...but I was really new then and didn't know any better.
    Keep in mind, the gear sling will only hold about 50 lbs ---

    Yep, lots of options out there and they are used by a fair number of us. In addition to those mentioned there’s also the MollyMac Gear Sling and the Simply Light Designs Gear Hammock, which is what I personally use.

    Awesome, thanks to everyone for the responses! I would much rather use one of the smaller cottage retailers instead of a larger company, so I will certainly look into all of these. Being new to hammock camping, I came across the ENO underbelly and thought it may be practical to keep my bag off the ground, but something like the hammock chair from Dutch would serve the same purpose, plus many others, for basically the same price. I greatly appreciate everyone's input.
