    Loving an Under Hammock!

    This is probably old news to most here, but for around $10 at a lot of Army/Navy stores, you can buy nylon net hammocks which make great gear stows/organizers. The past two outings, I've really enjoyed having my gear up off the ground and spread out under the fly.

    Here's the gear stow before I staked the fly on the near side. The hammock is a Hennessy Explorer Ultralight with the Hex Silnylon (30D) fly.



    Set up and ready for some ZZZZ's.

    Just used some paracord on each end for a little more reach.

    The story on that lovely cap... We got to our destination only to find out at the Welcome Center there was a quota gun hunt going on.
    I asked the lady about blaze orange, and the caps were all she had. I decided $15 was a small price to pay to keep my head from getting blown off.
    The irony? Those camo flames look a lot like antlers.

    Here's a daytime pic from a couple of weeks ago. Keeps the critters and water out of your gear. And it packs down to about the size of a baseball.

    Not sure... enough that the function is worth it to me.
    I'm not a gram counter, but if you're truly interested, I can weigh it with some fish scales.

    I always hang too low for these gear hammocks. My underquilt just clears the ground after I'm in the hammock.

    But olddog has a similar setup, where he attaches his above his hammock on the tarp's continuous ridgeline. Either way, these certainly are convenient!

    Same here. Although I do rig one along side of my hammock and pull it off to the side with a grip clip/stake.

    Great idea! Thanks for sharing it. I see those hammocks all the time and just pass them by. Someone om HF made a video making a seat out of a rice bag. I'm think I could make a storage sack out of one. The bulb is on... Thanks...
