    Great suggestions from everyone..I like the pocket idea for sure.
    Lack of preparation on your part does not constitue an emergency on mine.


    Not sure who said it ...but I like it

    +1 on Aardvark's pocket. (although Aardvark's execution is much neater than mine!!! )

    I'm going to follow Aardvark's lead there and add a velcro closure on the suspension pockets. I really like this method as it separates wet and/or sappy suspension from everything else in my backpack. The method of wrapping the suspension around the Bishop's sack is simple but doesn't address these issues.

    Tonight I get home I will send photo of completed and finished bag.
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    This is what I use I got them on clearance for 3 bucks each and it has the little pouch already on the end.
    If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

    That is a good idea! I have a few of these laying around from the days that I used my pads. I could not get the pads into them very easily, so I quit using them altogether....except as stuff sacks. Not I have a better use. Thanks!

    I'm using the double ended bag that came with my WBBB. I just stuff the whoopies inside each end and do up the drawstrings.

    After I have hung the hammock with whoopie slings a few times...I am not sure thats the suspension for me. If I am taking the tree straps already. My old suspension was straps and rings...I think I like it better. Time will tell.
    Here's a thought: since you're already good enough to make a BBB, why not throw a pocket on the outside to hold your tree straps?

    If you missed it, PuckerFactor and others showed off their skills with pockets in this thread.
