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.
I certainly haven't ruled out winter camping (in fact I'm quite interested), but I haven't quite gotten there yet (this is my first season backpacking), and my hiking partner, who is a moderately experienced backpacker, has no interest in going out in the cold. I, myself, am okay with the cold, but I don't want to be out if it's below 25 or so, I just don't see the point, especially when I can be at home snuggled next to a fire with my wife and kid.
