I do this when I'm using my DIY hammock. Not as much room in the Hennessy but still possible. With the DIY, I just use an s-biner to clip the pack to the suspension and let it sit on the foot end of the hammock. I can scaffle around inside the pack just by sitting up in the hammock. Having the pack in the hammock only really works because the hammock is huge. It's 12' long.
It just barely fits under the big Guide Gear tarp and I LOVE IT! It's ridiculously comfy.
I also have open nacrabiners threaded through the whipping at each end on both hammocks. I can hook them to the suspension and hang things from them inside the hammock if needed. That's the way I have to do it with the Hennessy because of the bugnet.
