Carry your normal 6 footers if they work most of the time and a 3'-5' amsteel "dog bone". The dog bone can be used as a "pack leash" to hang your pack from a tree, an extender for a tree strap, to hang a water bag for a gravity filter and whatever else you think of. Carry a few of them as they are quite useful and weigh very little.
