BTW, you will feel some wind through the ends of the BMB. It the one major heat loss area for me in my BMB. If you hang your pack at the end of the hammock from the spreader bars, it helps. If you have a winter tarp (closeable ends), even better.
FishinFinn, JJ, Et al,
The ends of a BMBH are 1.9 oz DWR like most hammocks, you should have no more heat loss though them than any other hammock... Especially since you are not in contact with them in the sleep position.
That said hanging the gear hammock/pack cover on the end is about a perfect match that addes two layers of silnyl and whatever you put in it as insulation to the end.
Hanging the pack from the spreader bar is not recommended as you can bend the spreader bar if there is too much weight in the pack.
Again the key to eliminating wind issues is first good site selection and second adequate tarp/tent.
