"How do the Clark North Americanís Insulating Pockets work?
Clark's patented pocket design locks in a stable air mass below you to deflect cold air that would otherwise cool the hammock material below your back. When you add a high quality sleeping bag, you can avoid having to buy cumbersome insulating pads and liners."
It might get you a few degrees compared to nothing, Kind of like some folks say a HH sil-nylon UC, all by itself, adds 5 or 10*F. So, I'm guessing instead of being a bit cool at 75 or 70, maybe you could do 65 or even 60. But I think at 40 or maybe even 50, your going to need something in those pockets. But what do I know, I've never tried it.
The HH Hyperlight and an HH Supershelter weighs 2 lb 10 oz.
It would work great for me to low 40s, probably OK to at least low 30s. Just for one example of many approaches that would work.
Another: A WB 3 season Yeti (11.5 oz) plus HH Hyper = 2 lb 5.5 oz, good to 30s. PLus a few oz for a leg pad, but you probably have a sit pad with you any way, or use your pack. There are several other lightweight possibilities. ( Then, with both of the above, when it is quite warm leave it all behind and save the weight!)
