    I use a clark NX 250 every night, indoors and out. Until just recently I used an under quilt made by folding a twin size comforter in half and adding grograin to form channels. This kept me completely comfortable in mid 20's and wind, and for top cover I used an old Slumber Jack 20 deg. sleeping beg as a top quilt. No problem with warmth, but a bit bulky and heavy to carry for very far. Some have made pillows insulated with down to slide into the pockets, someone even bought polyester insulated pillows to cram in the pockets, I tried this and it works, but the bottom line is that this hammock will not let you sleep comfortable in cold temps without some good insulation.

    I'm a newb but I travel into remote backcountry locations to fish. As an alpine climber, backcountry skier, and Mountain Rescue team member over 15 years I learned that good gear could not only make trips more enjoyable, but helped keep me alive in extreme conditions. I chose a Clark NX-250 because I have confidence in its rugged weatherproof and bug proof integrated system design.

    A cheaper alternative to the clark which is very compatible with CCF is the Claytor. I use mine with ccf and sleeping bag down into the Negative twenties. No need to spend a fortune. The ccf size and thickness is important too. If yours isn't very wide or thick, get another fo $5-10 and cut it to fit the width of the pad pocket (claytor has a sleeve for the pad) this will double up the pad where you need it most (your core) and provide the extra width at your shoulders and hips.

    Or you could just buy the Clark and be very happy with it.....

    I've been down to 35 with just a Mountain Hardwear Lamina UL bag (32 deg rated) with my stuff in the pockets. Had the weather shield mostly zipped, but fine. If it gets below that I'll go with the Hennesy Reflector pad, though I do have a down UQ if it gets much colder.

    They're not UL. However, for your size (I'm about the same a bit heavier) you'll have to get heavier hammocks in whatever anyone else puts out anyway.
