I'm fairly new to the idea of hammock camping, also new to the forum.
I'm working on putting together my first hammock camping setup, and have already purchased a few things that I would like to use.
ENO double nest
30* bag that I will either sleep in or use as a quilt.
What I need now is some sort of insulation. I don't plan on camping in very cold weather, probably only down to the mid 40's at most. I have two main problems. One is that I don't really know where to start with this, or what options will really work.
The other problem is that I don't have a lot of $$ to spend on the rest of the setup.
I've been looking around the forum, and pulled together a couple ideas, but I would like some input, and then any other ideas that you guys have to offer.
- wool blanket
This would be like the army surplus wool blankets, not the super soft ones. The idea I had was to either hang it underneath as an underquilt or fold it and use it as a pad inside the hammock.
Would it be warm enough? Which use would be better? Will the roughness of the wool wear out the ENO fabric?
- CC foam pad
The Walmart pads can be found for very little money, but are large.
Would that be enough for 40* weather? Do the edges cause any additional wear on the hammock? Would it be better to cut it down (round the corners) for use in an ENO double nest?
Thanks in advance!
