I'm a rare breed around here in that I'm not nearly as comfortable as I would like to be in most gathered end hammocks. The JRB bridge solved that problem for me.
Good advise given above. A pad in a bridge hammock with a pad pocket is as
comfortable as using only an underquilt IMO. I wouldn't rule out colder weather camping such as winter camping. That's when the real fun begins in a hammock IMO.
