    Insulation now that's a big subject in itself.

    I was looking for tips on hammock and tarp when I found his page.
    Many thanks to Shug
    I'm sorry for my bad English but I hope you understand anyway.

    Have a nice day.
    Your "bad English" is better than my good American. Please dont apologize, keep your coments coming, its always good to hear from others.

    Welcome Chinook. I hope you have a great time with your hammock and this forum.

    In the weather we have here, 50 to 60 deg at night, I use a closed cell foam mat.

    Below 20 to 15 deg C. I don't know what the exact temp is.
