Right before I got into using a hammock I bought a WM Summelite (full zipper) mummy bag for backpacking. Due to limited funds I was forced to use it in my hammock. But after a year of hammocking I find no reason to replace it.

I think personal preference, experimentation, and how much moola you want to spend comes into play for a lot of this stuff. I, for one, don't like using a pad inside my hammock and went to an underquilt but for others it's a non-issue.
This is not a new statement, but for any newbies out there, there is no one way. Find what works for you and HYOH! That's what makes it so much fun!
