    Another method you could use would be to have overlapping folds of fabric, like the way a pack's hydration port is made.

    Everytime I go hiking...I have these crazy invention ideas pop into my head. This was one, and I also thought about some type of removable boot sole that could be clipped on/off the bottom of trail runners, so when hiking in rocky areas (PA for instance) you could have more support and foot protection from sharp edges/rocks, but then remove them when not needed, and still have the blister-forgiving/quick drying fit of a trailrunner. I thought you could have them attach like the Step-In Snowboarding Bindings (see pic)

    There's a snowshoe setup that has a lightweight hiking boot, an overboot, and a snowshoe. They all clip together as a set. I forget the name, but it might give you some ideas if you search for it.

    Using a nalgene inside the hammock never occurred to me; seems like it's more complicated and more stuff to deal with than I'd care for.
    I use a little water bottle of the sort you sometimes get on airplanes or the like, 8-oz plastic. Tie cord around the neck with a loop, insert a micro-biner, hang it along with everything else hanging on the ridgeline, slide up and back (possibly using a foot) when thirsty. Same solution could work for a pee-bottle for those that use one. Just don't get them confused in the middle of the night.

    I kept the HH mesh thing; the smaller of the two pockets is useless/annoying for many things, but I always end up stuffing something in, typically a small headlamp. Most things I want to hang are easy --- thermometer sometimes, watch, clothes to dry out, limited extra clothes from the loop at the head-end.
