I'm a little confused how you rig your gear line.... under the hammock? Beside the hammock? The only way I can access an external line is through the bottom flap. > > > I rig the gear line above...

I'm short enough that I could bring the pack into the hammock with me, actually, which might help keep me in place, too.
