    Returnin Hanger

    I'm returning to hammock hangin from bivies, for three seasons in the Smokies. I've been good to 40dF with a windshield reflector and near 20dF with a ridgerest in an HH ULB. Whats the point or advantage in blowing the budget on an UnderCover or underquilt for the casual hanger (10-20 per/yr)? What would one use to stay warm in the teens?

    Welcome back.

    Many people have used a combination of pads down into the teens. Pads are normally a very low cost alternative to under quilts. This thread may give you some info on what pad setup may be best for you.

    Thanks head. The biggest difference seems to be comfort. Since I have no probs with warmth or comfort on a pad there's no use in change, yet. There sure has been a lot of new hammocks and accessories since I got the HH a few years ago!
