    Like the title says

    Willing to try the single or the double for the right price, as long as its the NANO.

    Are they cold because they aren't protected by an UQ - touching the exposed hammock fabric?

    If so a wide UQ should do the trick. I haven't experienced this problem with bridges in the past.

    I use the 20 in FL whenever the temp drops below 40. Would go that route if you can only have one. Will be fine in 40f temps, and if you manage to get too warm, you can vent it a bit.
