16508Re: Packing your hammock
- Dec 9, 2006I've been using snakeskins and leaving the sack at home. I put the
hammock and Nest inside teh skins, then fold the snake up and put it
in the bottom of my pack b/c that's where it fits best. My pack is
hourglass shaped so the length of the bundle fills out the bottom just
right...it kinda makes a "U". Then I put my top quilt on top of the
bundle in the middle of the U. Everything else goes around that, then
my food goes on top. Tarp goes in an outer mesh pocket so I can hang
it separately w/o unpacking anything if it's raining.
Stuffing the Nest inside the skins is a bit of a hassle when I get to
the center though, so I just made a stuff sack based on an idea
blackbishop had at the Hot Springs campout in September. Haven't
field tested it yet but I have a feeling this is gonna replace my
If you're using the skins, why do you also carry the stuff sack?
