    DD travel Hammock question

    Hello everyone ...Just a quick question my wife and I have gotten new travel hammocks just wondering if you really need a UQ considering you have a double lair ..I was thinking of a z lite mat and a good sleeping bag ..just wondering what method you might use .

    Thanks in advance !

    I suppose each person is different, but i used an underblanket with my DD hammock. Either that, or, use an inflatable sleep mat inserted between the layers.

    I used my DD travel for a while with ccf mats. They do work quite well, especially as a ground sleeping system too and are lighter than UQ's.. You don't need an UQ, but they are better.

    After spending a night with a cold back i wouldn't even hang out without the UB. Not tried a self inflating mat yet but i would expect cold spots.

    Self inflating mats are pants in hammocks IMO, they are a pain and keep moving. Even with blobs of silicon, I cant get on with them. CCF mats are much better and are warmer than UQ's for the same weight but are much bulkier to carry.

    CCF pads work well for me.
