      i use a kelty coyote 4500, which is a 4 lb 3 or so oz pack in stock
      trim. i have or can loose over a pound of that when i want too, i
      like it because i got it cheap and holds 5 days of stuff even during
      the winter. all in side i dont hang stuff on the out side except a
      coat during the winter for easy access during breaks. it has a full
      suspension including load lifters, and i can carry 35 lbs with out
      noticing it ( closer to 25 lbs during the summer )

      the top of the pack is set up to use as a fanny pack when you want i
      removed the straps, because they were annoying.

      well i wont use a structural ridge line per say it would be a strap from one tree to another that the fly can hang off of. also the hammock will hook to loops

        also the hammock will hook to loops ( multible loops ) on the strap
        so different sags only take a second. different sags apply to useing
        as a chair vrs hammock or even both sides to one loop and it is out
        of the way in 1 sec

        the bug net will also hang from this strap but be removable

        and will have asym tie outs ( i like um )

        now for extreme light weight the ridge strap can be changed to just
        short straps and hung speer style with no bug net or fly

        just think HH shape with speer access, risk's weighted bug net, a
        ridge line you could hang on. A single step in the rain ie : run
        strap to hang both hammock and fly from not 2 seperate steps ie: hang
        fly then hang hammock.]

        etc etc

        hanging whole thing should take 3 mins fly and all
