    How does your stuff hang?

    Uh, not that stuff. Your pack and stuff.

    Does everyone hang their pack from the hammock suspension, or is there another handy trick to keep everything off the ground and dry? If there's something else, pics?

    I don't lie the idea of my pack banging around on my suspension potentially waking me up. Generally I keep it under my tarp within my reach. My water is usually in there. I will bring a garbage bag if there is going to be a lot of rain. I will throw the entire bag in a hefty.

    I seal my pack in a trash compactor bag, on the ground under the tarp coverage. Haven't had any problems with rats and mice so far.

    I like the gear hammock. The Molly Mac Gear Box was the one I chose because of the SEEP option to close it up and hang it under a different set of trees. I use the shelf in the WBBB to keep necessary items close.

    I use my pack cover to put my shoes in at night & water - usually my pack is just about empty so I hang it on a tree. if its raining it can hang on suspension.

    I haven't tried it yet in the field but I like making a tripod out of 3 branches - looks like a good solution to hang pack under tarp.

    I've hung my pack on a tree, to my suspension, or just lay it on the ground beside my hammock but under my tarp. What ever situation suits. It'll get wet when I hike just as easy as it will laying there. I only hang it to get it out of my way, if that's what I feel like. Works any which way,,,for me.

    I hang mine on one of the trees I anchor my hammock to. I keep it off my suspension.
