    I use the gear hammock from JRB and it is great. All my extra gear goes in it and that means they are easy to reach.

    I use it regularly too, and find it very useful. Sometimes I just put it on the ground and store all my loose gear in it. It helps keep everything clean and organized, and I can easily access anything I want while seated in the hammock. I used it hanging more often when I had my HH, since it hung near the foot end strap and I could reach things while seated on the entry slit.

    I now remember seeing a reference to the gear hammock.
    That's the one that Jeff came up with.
    I'll check it out.
    Welcome to HF! I usually hang it from the tree strap, but in my latest gear acquisition blitz I did acquire a JRB pack cover/gear hammock. Where in So. FL do you hail from? Attached is most likely a picture from the FL Trail

    Don't worry Photograhiker, I only boil water in my kitchen kit and use the "freezer bag cooking" method. All food, freezer bags, utensils, even toothpaste & soap, go in the bear bag, 300' from camp.

    Thanks for all the storage from the tree strap wisdom, everyone!

    You are very observant, NorseAmerican! I'm located a little south of you in Boynton Beach. The picture is from the White Mountains in New Hampshire. I own what I someday hope to be my retirement home there. Of course, I might be 150 years old by then at the rate this economy is going!

    One reason the I've become interested in hammocking is the fact that it's hard to find a clear, level spot to pitch a tent in the White Mountains!

    Cool! I am taking my 12 yr old son to Tru the LT this summer. I grew up on Mt. Mansfield in Stowe VT. Would love to hike the AT through NH(and more time permitting).

    Well, I need to be in Boynton for fingerprinting in a few Saturdays from now for my Brokers Licensing, so if you want to try out a BB, let me know and I will gladly bring one(or any other goodies I aquired from this site) down with me for you to check out.

    Watch out-this gets expensive! I of course had to update my gear from the 70's/80's to all this wonderful light weight gear. The best is finding out that you can actually wake up without being crippled in the morning. Something I have never been able to do on the ground-even as a teen!

    I always pack a half length ccf mat incase I need to go to ground. I lie it under my hammock so I can change out of my shoes without introducing dirt to the hammock. My pack also goes on the mat. I've never had them get wet. It's also easy enough to reach an arm out and grab a water bottle if needed.

    I comandered a 1" gardening pad for sitting and foot mat. Put my shoes on it at night. Keeping in mind not to just stick my feet in the next morning

    Most packs aren't waterproof. What about a drybag? See this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=omdLgtE4ums

    Smile My setup

    I hang my pack from a tree strap around the tree or from the head end of my hammock this way my head is lower than foot end. I somtimes slide around. I use a pack cover if needed. One more thing I do is slide my camelback tube through and opening at the head end side that I made and use the clip to hang the bite valve to my ridgeline. I drink alot of water. Make sure you lock off the bite valve. Just in case; One more thing Welcome to hammock forums! I have always loved this site and cannot say enough about the people that make this site possible.
