I know the minimum temperature that's comfortable for each person (without an underquilt) is different, but what's a good rule of thumb? I usually don't get cold very easily.
Its 55 F at night up in the North Georgia Mountains and I'm guessing I'll be comfortable with no bottom insulation in my hammock if I wear my light weight wool long johns and use a top quilt. My clark hammock sleeps at least 5 degrees warmer than the outside temp if you close the weather shield. I'm only going for an overnight and I'm trying to cut my load to a minimum so I'd like to leave the underquilt behind as long as its not just a dumb thing to do. I've not used my equipment enough to know the limits.
What advice do you have .. good or bad idea to skip the underquilt at 55 degrees?
I'm confident I won't be miserable without an underquilt. I just don't want to be even a little cold if I don't have to. My 20 degree top quilt will be overkill but its what I have
