    I'm also looking for something thats only half the length of the hammock, not full length, around 20 degrees, and isn't too difficult to set up. Any suggestions welcome.

    I have a double layer hammock so I can just slip the reflectix in between the layers. I'm assuming this would still cause condensation though.



    That sounds awesome! Where did you get fleece?
  26. Can you use reflectix by itself as bottom insulation?

    A stupid question since a lot of people here talk about its uses in hammocks, but I never heard anyone talk about using it by itself.
