    Air. Trapped warm, dry air is the secret.

    Nothing beats experience, and bad ones at that. Just got back from a overnight trip near Blood Mountain GA. With the wind chill it was in the 20s. Two guys brought tents "because I want to stay warm". Two of us brought our hammocks. They froze, we slept like baby angels.

    I'd like to hear what you would consider the top 5 most essential items for staying comfortable down to zero degrees F. That includes anything (hammock accessories, clothes, hiking equip., etc.) except for the hammock itself. Don't hesitate to include details like brand and model.
    If its zero degrees I better be in snow

    #1 Adjustable Insulation (Hammock and body)
    #2 Good sized tarp
    #3 A reliable way to cook and get water
    #4 FOOD (If your hungry your cold)
    $5 Pulk (Brought whole world of awesomeness )


    Quilts cant go wrong with most of the cottage vendors (I am a particular fan of Leigh-lo and Hammock Gear)

    Tarps cant go wrong with most. Warbonnet Superfly seems the most popular option. I currently use one from Gargoyle.

    Stoves are more individual tastes but most use white gas or Wood-burning during the Winter. Canisters don't perform as well at sub freezing temps.
    I have heard mixed reviews on Alcohol for sub freezing temps. But some use it.
