Here is a good question many have found different solutions to. How and where do you pack your tree straps and tarp ridgeline(s)? Mine are in a small re-purposed stuff sack and packed on the outside of my pack so I can get to them and get them up in the rain or snow without exposing the contents of my pack to the weather. If incliment weather is assured, I make the tarp easily accessable as well.
I am a fragile thing and like to set up my rig under a tarp and out of the weather.
