    same as .. under my hammock on a tarp/poncho with my waterproof jacket over it all snug, did see a vid once where a lad utilised a spare run of para between the trees under his hammock and twisted a walking stick in to make a tripod type holder upper!!! was cool!

    virtually under my hammock (usually slightly to one side) I place ruck on a platform of stones, or wood, to raise it up incase of rain flowing through and cover it with plastic bag

    You have just given me a great idea for keeping my pack dry thanks chaps.

    I usually have a space blanket type thing under me and put my pack on it, but I hate leaving it on the floor and last weekend it got quite wet.

    I think I'm gonna try using a black bin liner but put it over the top so the hole is at the bottom then bungee it to a tree!!

    Thanks chaps

    I used to use a net hammock that went under my sleeping hammock, to put all my stuff in and keep it off the ground.

    Hang it from the end of the hammock.

    I have placed it on the floor using the rucksack cover but if it looks like its really going to be wet then I hang it at the head end of my hammock using a 'biner clipped to the stainless ring. It keeps droughts away and lowers the head end stopping me slipping down the hammock.

    That will be worth a try next time out....so simple I had over looked it like most of the others it seems,

    Does anyone or has anyone else hung them from the hammock suspension, if so let me know your thoughts, ta very much
