    Like ocdave and mad777 said, I carry a piece of Tyvek in my pack. Among other purposes, it works well to keep the pack dry. I lay the pack on the Tyvek, flip the Tyvek over so the pack is covered top and bottom, and it goes on the ground under my hammock somewhere so it's also under the tarp. That method worked well in October last year during a pretty violent thunderstorm with lots of wind blown rain up on the AT.

    I use a gear hammock that I hang below my hammock. I like having my stuff off of the ground and within easy reach of my hammock. It's about 5 1/2 ounces, but worth it to me to know that critters aren't sleeping in my shoes or pack.

    I'm with those who hang it on the hammock suspension. No need for hooks, biners or other doo-dads... a slipped clove hitch can be tied with one hand.



    Or hang it on a tree... as simple as tyin' yer shoes!

    UL, because nobody ever asks "How can I make my pack heavier?"

    I use a gear hammock slung next to me. It keeps everything off the ground and within reach while I'm in my hammock.

    I hang it on the head end to help with keeping my feet elevated.

    So many options. The best suggestion is to simply use a contractor bag and place it under hammock. If you have a poncho, that can do the same while being multipurpose. If you have a small pack without a hip belt, I bet you can hang it inside your hammock from the foot end peak.

    Or you can use a gear hanger and a pack hanger from Dutchware like I did here in this pic.

    Iíve done all of the above and they work. One other thing I like to do is run a separate ridgeline (outside of the bugnet). It weighs almost nothing, and then I just clip my pack to it with a carabiner, and can slide anywhere along side the hammock. No need for a seperate gear hammmock when I can just keep it in the pack, slide up next to me to get something out or put something away, then slide it down to the foot end 9 opposite side from my feet), and you donít even know itís there.

    I 'biner it to the head end suspension of my WB-XLC 'cause the hammock pull-outs encourage a foot end approach under the tarp.

    If there's blowing rain that's mild, I'll just stash in the compactor bag I put all my stuff in anyways in my pack, laid under the hammock. If there's really bad blowing rain and massive precipitation, I'll clip it on my hammock suspension. I've seen some storms where the pack could literally wash away and I'd never find it!
