I'm just curious as to what everyone does for keeping their pack and gear dry when hanging in the rain. Do you use a pack cover and load everything in there? Have you had any trouble with water pooling on the bottom of the cover (open on the back side)? Do you lay your pack against a tree? Lay it back-side to the ground? Hang it all under your hammock? Hang the pack with the gear from a tree?
I've left my pack out in the rain before and had water pooled on the bottom of my cover, thats why I ask. I leaned it up against a tree with the pack cover on but that didn't keep all the water out. I've thought about the hanging method but I would have to have some other kind of cover that would enclose the back panel/straps/suspension to keep all the water out.
