    what do you do with your gear?

    Another noobie here with a question about putting up your gear. What do most of you guys and gals do with your bag, shoes etc... when your done for the night.

    Thanks Brian

    I always put my pack cover on my pack and set it right under my hammock. I put a grocery back over my boots and put them right next to the pack. Never been an issue for me even in heavy rain.

    I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.

    Put my bag into the pack liner and lay that down with the rest of my gear of my 'Floormat'!

    I put mine in a gear hammock suspended above my hammock underneath my tarp.

    Here is a video that shows it in action (about halfway through - you can see the orange gear hammock in the video still):



    Here is first of a series of videos showing how I made it:

    In nice weather, I hang my pack on line suspended between two nearby trees that I also use for hanging other stuff. In wet weather, I do as already mentioned and put my pack in my pack cover and leave it under my hammock.

    Various options according to weather conditions and how long I'm staying put...

    1. Boots upside down on two sticks near the hammock, but angled away so I don't spear myself in the night.
    2. A net hammock, hung above mine, as a gear loft.
    3. Pack and all gear inside a large drybag under the hammock.


    I don't use a welcome mat, so pack / put away all my gear when I've finished with it.

    Picture below shows the gear loft in use on a Scout camp.
