Also, at the ends of the ridgeline, where it connects to the hammock, there's a loop. You can tie a cord or clip a biner up there, then use that to clip stuff sacks or whatever and they'll stay above your head within easy reach.
Where do you put the hydration tube, or do you not have it connected to the one you're using as a pillow?
You all should have seen me when my ridgeline got pulled half way out of the that little mesh pocket. I decided to make this modification on my last overnight, so my resources for getting the ridgeline threaded back through the pocket, were very limited. I ended up using my dental floss and several small sticks to pull the ridgeline back through and tie the end to a biner. I felt like Macgyver for a second.
