I have a ULA Ohm and when I am in camp it is empty (or very close to it) so I take a S-biner and clip one end to the lift strap and the other to the hammock suspension leading to the tree. It keeps it off the ground and under the tarp so it stays dry. If the rain blows, I can either use my ZPacks cuben pack cover to protect it or use the trash compactor bag that I use inside my pack to put the pack in and use that to keep it dry. This method hasn't failed me yet! Bonus is that the pack acts as a nice wind break if you need it, just attach it to the end that the wind may be coming in and it blocks it enough to keep it from hitting you directly.
