    Yeah I gotcha. I just like having my stuff right above me, since the space is available. Convenience and all. I've used ridgeline-type-setups in tents and tarps before, for the same reason. Cuts down on the inevitable disorientation when waking up in the morning....or for a middle-of-the-night bathroom run, too

    I used to hang my HH with the ridgeline tight.

    Bowstring tight. Too tight. I am much happier with the sag I now have, and I do not experience problems with the netting.

    I think that hanging a water bottle from the ridgeline will cause sag no matter what. Better to clip it into one of the interior end loops with a mini-biner.

    With proper sag you should be able to clip & unclip to your heart;s content.
