Foam Mats/Thermarests Vs Underquilts
I have the DD Travel Hammock 2008 Edition (the one with only 1 entry side)
My sleep system has always been:
A Closed Cell foam Mat (NATO Issue)
A Softie 12 Sleeping bag
A UK Army Issue Goretex Bivvy Bag
and if needed a Softie silk sleeping bag liner (Its so small and light the weight is negligible and the added warmth can be great.
I have never used a thermarest of self-inflating kipmat, thought they were too heavy, and as for under quilts I never even heard of them untill I joined this forum....lol
I have never felt cold in my set up (Yet!!!!!)
I have spent may years as a ground dweller just under a tarp before i found the joy of hammocking.
So my question is personal preferences aside which is the best set-up
I'm in the UK so Extreme Cold is not really an issue, nor is really heavy snowfall.
Any advice is welcome but please be honest, facts and reasons why guys and ladies
thanks in advance
