I don't plan on using the hammock in winter, but, the more I read, and UQ could be used all year, and adjust the TQ or temp adjust.
Does that seem right?
Right now I just want to insulate the bottom, so I can get out and try the hammock overnight.
IMO, you don't need anything more than a sleeping bag right now. I'm another newb to this hanging thing. I have a HH explorer deluxe and have been sleeping comfortably the past couple of nights outside with nothing more than a sleeping bag under me and around me a little. Just get out there and enjoy it! If you get cold, go inside.
There is SOOOOO much great info here, it can be easy to get distracted by the things you think you need vs. what you will discover what you need by experience. Enjoying the outdoors comfortably is what this is all about anyway, right?
