    Indoor hangers insulation

    For people who hang indoors
    What insulation if any do you use and how low temp wise could you go indoors without any

    Many thanks

    depends on how warm you sleep, to be honest (like anything else)

    I've just used a wool blanket inside the hammock (underneath me) and that was more than enough. I've also used a CDT underquilt, which was pretty great as well.

    I just use a double layer of fleece under my hammock that I sewed into a underquilt. Since my home is climate controlled with both heat and AC I use it all the time, except for a few nights when it was really hot out and my AC was having issues.

    Above about 70 degrees, I don't use anything. Below 70, I use a 1 season 3/4 length Jarbridge from AHE, which is just my regular summer underquilt.

    My basement stays at a nice 65 - 68 range year round. I use my The Nest and vent it a bit. On top I use a fleece blanket.

    I sleep year-round in a Blackbird XLC with a 40 deg Wooki underquilt with a fleece blanket on top during summer. In winter, I switch to a 20 deg Wooki and 20 deg top quilt. The basement bedroom is cold in winter and cool in summer. I swap the XLC for a Ridgerunner for a couple months at a time and use the same configurations. I like sleeping toasty but not sweaty in a cold/cool room.

    I use any of several UQs any time it's under about 70F overnight low. That's >95% of the time where I live. I haven't found a 0F UQ to feel significantly warmer than a very light UQ when it's in the 60s anyway. I've used JRBs, rigged up ordinary quilts with bungees, and also used the LaSiesta Colibri "quilted" travel hammock as an UQ. The latter serves nicely all by itself for, e.g. motel travel or staying with friends/family. I can't sleep well outside a hammock at all.

    Where I live, really hot days are rare enough that few people have AC. This means that those few days you'd really want it (>100F), a hammock is bliss, and I pity the bed-sleepers. I wet it and point a fan underneath: almost too cold.

    A Snugpak is a great choice for indoors. $50, no DIY hassle.

    I sleep with a 0 Wooki +2oz year round. I could use something thinner in summer, but the extra insulation is no problem for me.

    Thanks for answers
    At present UK summer unusually hot I am using no uq
    I have a fan on blowing at bottom of hammock
    In winter as the room is unheated I have a snugpak TQ and uq. I have also found that keeping the hammock low to the carpeted floor also helps
    Does this agree with anyone else's use
