    And that reminds me... a pee bottle is an important addition to cold-weather sleeping gear.

    Being an older fella i pee 3-4x in the night. I dig a small hole, 3-4" deep about where my feet would be if i sat in the hammock. I use a 500gr yogurt container inside the hammock, just turn on my side, and lean out and pour it in the hole. That way i never leave the cocoon. Leave the container on the ground till next time. Its good to take a magic marker and mark one side of the lip of the container which is where your thumb will go each time, avoiding getting pee fingers.
