I used a stuff sack from a big old syn. sleeping bag. Then I sewed a larger button hole in the bottom of the stuff sack so the tree strap will fit through but the descender ring will not.The bottom button hole is the foot end. Then I can deploy the hammock with the TQ, UQ and bed clothes in place. I pack this into my pack by squishing the loaded sack into a long shape and as big around as the opening on my cuben pack liner. It is easier to do than I explained it. Once it is in the liner and pack I squash the rest of the way to the bottom of my pack. One more thing I have done is sew a hair tie at the top( near the draw string) and bottom (next to the button hole). This way I can wrap up my tree straps.
