I have thought about cutting a small slit in the netting right where it joins the hammock, near my head, and then hanging my water bladder on the outside of the hammock and then running the drinking tube inside the hammock. I would probably sew some velco on the hole so that I could close it up when not in use. Instant hammock hydration port!
When I was out on my last overnighter, I had a similar idea, only I thought about sewing in a permanent "access port" into the hammock. Something like the expandable rubber grommets used in the firewall of your car to feed wires from under the hood into the passenger area.
You can feed your hydration tube through the port, but not have to worry about it being an access point for skeeters and gnats if you don't have your tube pulled through, because it closes up and seals. Oh, I didn't come up w/these dimensions by the way, it was just the pic I found.
