    I had the same issue. Once it was out of the bag the first time that was it. I put the hammock in its sack, but the fly goes in its own bag now. It helps keep stuff dry if I put the wet fly in its own water resistant bag. Most of the time it is damp in the morning, even if it didn't rain. I use one of the orange sacks from Walmart. If it is really wet I could clip the outside of the pack

The tarp will them pack into a small enough package to fit almost anywhere (day hatch of a kayak) so you can pull it out and set it up first if necessary. Having said that though, I don't normally use the stock tarp from Hennessy unless I'm guaranteed perfect weather, it just needs to be too precise so I opt for a bit bigger one.
    this is not true, i pack mine with the snakeskin's. takes more work and isn't quite as small but it fits.

I will take some pics but it has really not been a problem.
    What he said. It should all fit pretty easily in the bag. Hammock ,straps and tarp.

    Historically I have put the snakeskins stuffed with my HH Deluxe in the orig stuff sack with a handful of stakes and the 2" tree huggers. My tarp I always kept rolled up in an outside pocket of my pack. My thought was the tarp is the first deployed and then i work under it. Therefore, it's the last think down and into the pack.

    That being said, I just recently changed my strategy... and it's still a work in progress. I switched the snake skins to my tarp, which will still be stored in an outside pocket of the pack for the same reasons.

    After installing the HHSS I decided that rather than take all that apart again i would leave it together and then nothing would fit in my stuff sack anyway. So, I just sorta rolled the HH, HHSS and sleeping bag all up together and stuff it into the bottom of my backpack. Sorta like the guy in the HH video, but I did roll it somewhat and tie it a little with the suspension cords. It's not much bigger than the sleeping bag was anyway. I could probably stuff it into a compression sack and shrink it.

    I keep my Explorer in snake skins and then I used the original stuff sack for their large fly because I couldn't get the fly back into it's original sack. So to repeat, hammock only in it's snake skins and stuff the rainfly into the hammock sack. Works for me
