    For me getting out of the hammock has been the only problem. In is just fine. I do have a good pillow under my knees with my insulated blanket on that for early in the morning and another smaller pillow under my head with a 90" wide tablecloth DIY that's 132 inches long. Which is why on weekends I also have my Grand daughter and one or two jealous dogs in there at the same time. Sometimes a bossy cat too.

    Here's a follow-up question: Do you line the hammock with a flat sheet, or just lay directly on the material?

    You will need some kind of insulation below you, either in the hammock or hanging under it, even at room temperature.

    I use classic wool blanket for insulation, just place in hammock it and wraping myself in it as needed.

    Some form of a loose UQ, or as stated above, a blanket inside the hammock?

    I might try a PL loosely tied as a temp UQ.

    after 2 nights in the hammock i decided to get rid of the bed, i did have some soreness in the muscles of my back for a few weeks, but it went away shortly after i got up in the morning and i attributed it to the fact that my back was getting massaged as i slept ,so to speak.
    as for insulation, on my winter hammock ,i suspend an old down quilt under it with bungee cord
