    What clothing do you wear when you sleep in your hammock in the woods

    I wear a thermal trousers and long sleeves t-shirts. When the temperature is under 40's I also wear a wool hat.
    As I'm newbie in cold weather I have tried wearing those clothing in summer nights here but I got CBS and couldn't get sleep even using my sleeping bag. This is why I ordered quilts from HG to me and the wife. Also I got the 2qzq UQP to increase the warmth and obviously to protect the UQ.
    Even though, I will keep wearing my "pijamas" to protect my skin.

    Normal 3 season on the trail is shorts and tshirt or lightweight hoodie - i like sleeping with a hood vs hat, but I do bring a climasheild beanie on most trips. If its sub 45, I'll being sleep socks too.
    I'll reserve my puffy if I misjudge the overnight low.

    If I'm in the backyard, generally a normal weight hoodie and pajama pants.

    I wear very minimal clothing in my hammock, as your insulation is actually more effective if you have less on. Same applies to sleeping bags on the ground. With an UQ/TQ combo, you should be comfortable down to the quilts temp rating. My setup currently is very much jerry rigged. I have a Snugpack UQ, and Jungle Blanket, which does not have the sewn foot box. Previously, I used a Coleman big & tall sleeping bag that I re-engineered into a pod, with the Jungle Blanket if I needed a little extra insulation. I might wear a fleece or wool beanie on my head if its really cold out, but otherwise, its just shorts and a T-shirt.

    Above 10F or so I wear nylon shorts, a wicking t shirt, and light weight will socks. Below that it's light weight fleece top and bottom and oversized heavy weight wool socks. Wool hat below freezing and if it's really cold down booties.

    But I don't live in Brazil....

    Same clothes as I hike in, except a clean shirt reserved for just sleeping.

    Maybe I’m nuts, but I won’t wear socks until it drops below around 25. Above that? Barefoot. 25 is around my boundary into “cold” sleep wear.

    For torso warmth I have a long sleeve merino, or a long sleeve midweight shirt, then my favorite is a light wool blend sweater. A micropuff Patagonia is my backup. On my legs a lightweight merino long john, or perhaps a midweight ECWCS long john (same stuff I wear under the dry suit when kayak fishing).

    I do go toasty with my head. Either a balaclava or a fleece neck gaiter, then at least the UGQ skully, maybe with a light merino cap underneath.

    I wear UniQlo heattech underwear and works a treat. Thin, warm, comfy, cheap
