As the journey starts ...... ahhh, fun stuff.
Look forward to seeing your final choices.

I have since switched to an underquilt, so don't expect to go much lower, but I would predict that the downmat 7 would be warm to at least the teens.
A downmat 9 could potentially be warm to zero degrees, if you have adequate top insulation.
Do follow the above advise.
Do get the cheapest hammock to start.
Lifetime daytime hanger.
Two seasons into overnights : summer and fall. Down to 30deg.
We bought a ENO Doublenest then began to consider nighttime hanging.
THEN found this site.
My first moonlit summer night I was hooked. My husband not as much.
Reading and learning here will at first confuse then help sort out what is best for you.
Our second hammock is a ENO singlenest ( would not get this again ),
there WILL BE a WB BlackBird in the future.
Like the ENO Doublenest because it can wrap around you like a cocoon ( for quick naps with few bugs )
and no attached bugnet.
Got a Speers Snugfit UQ for husband and have made ( DIY ) varied seasonal cocoons ( for me ) and topquilts.
Welcome and Enjoy.
