    Single or Double layer

    So getting ready to make a new hammock and was wondering what the advantages to a double layer were besides a place to put a pad.

    Ive never tried a single but I would like to. For some reason the two layers sliding against each other bug me.

    Single or Double layer

    I find double layer to be a bit warmer, great for the three second rate seasons. In the good season I like single layer because a little breeze and you nice and cool.
    Carpe noctem!!
