    Hammock Ridgeline Innovations?

    I wanted to start a thread about the coolest / most innovative things people hang on their ridgelines. Lights, water holders, special clips, pockets, etc.

    I have the 2Z & 2Q Pocket Ridgeline Organizer. Nothing special or innovative on my part.... but I am looking for new ideas!

    i twist my headlamp around mine and make it basically like an overhead light. that and my watch go on it (so i can easily see the time if i wake up in the middle of night).

    sorry, it's not that innovative.

    I hang my sherpa on my ridgeline so I know where he is every morning.

    Actually, I just hang my headlamp on there as soon as I set up camp. That way it's ALWAYS either on my neck/head or ridgeline when it's not in my pack.

    I also tie my shoes together and throw them over the ridgeline or hammock supports.

    So nothing too exciting.

    I also have a 2Z & 2Q Pocket Ridgeline Organizer & a Peak bag on 2 of my hammocks. I'm also in the headlamp on the RL club. My Peak bag holds a Kimber, so thats pretty cool

    Also nothing fancy but I find these clip on rotatable mini LED lights to be a nice, lightweight, ridgeline add on. Lets you aim the light were you want it. Nice for reading.

    I bought a bunch of those from CountyComm as well. The orange ones seem to be brighter than the olive drab ones...but I have one on each pack, and one spare for the hammock. I could probably just leave it on the ridgeline it's so small, and pack it right up with the hammock into the WBBB bag.

    I use these little biners that I picked up at EMS. They occasionally forget to take them off of their products. If you are lucky they will give you a couple extra if you ask nice. If anyone knows where to buy these little guys please let me know. They are wicked light and super handy dandy.

    I used some paracord and hung my ipod touch from it so that I can lay back and watch movies/tv shows that I've downloaded
