The shockcord pulled snug makes the ridge line pretty taunt, enough to hang a headlamp and my glasses. As for the other stuff in my hammock phone, book, and other small odds and ends I just use the pockets it came with. As for the ridge line holding up an organizer with weight it's not going to work with my setup. The idea of a SRL will work, I have done it on a DYI SB I made. The only disadvantage is there is a lot of extra netting. I also didn't use spreader bars when I used that setup. What I have found with a lot of trial and error the setup I have now works great for me. Play around with it and maybe you will come up with the next great mod.
