    I have my hammock kit, which lives assembled in a dry bag.
    it consists of;
    1x Group buy hammock
    1x Group buy mossie net
    9m paracord ridgeline
    2x 3m Spectra suspension lines
    Snugpac Underblanket
    Snugpac Quilt
    I set it up by tying on one end, then draw it out of the dry bag until I can connect up the other end.
    I then tie the ridge line to support the net away from me and to give me admin space.
    It's packed the reverse of setup.

    My tarp setup varies, but it's usually a ridgeline, a hexfly (with four attached guylines) and four Ti pegs.

    HH Expedition with hex tarp upgrade and stock suspension.

    Although the supplied tarp is a little on the small side, the hex tarp is a perfect upgrade for me. The stock suspension is fine too, I don't hammock that often that I need to shave seconds of the setup time with whoopies at the moment.

    Currently working on a PLUQ (DIY underquilt) as per these instructions http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=18539&highlight=pluq

    Hammock: UK Hammocks 'Britbonnet' WBBB Dual Layer Clone w/mods
    Tarp: Superfly with 2QZQ Doors or Big Mamajamba or DIY 3x3.5m tarp (all depending upon conditions)
    Suspension: Whoopie Slings, Tree Straps w/Dutch Clips and Marlin Spikes
    Bottom Insulation: Exped 7 DLX Mat
    Top Insulation: Rab Ascent 900 (winter) Rab Neutrino 200 (summer)

    I use shock-cord guys with heavy duty mitten clips at the tarp end which can be used on any of my tarps, although they're probably a little bit under-strength for anything other than silnylon.
