    It might be, but I'm claustrophobic and find a quilt wrapped around me works just as well.

    It's also pretty easy to cook from the hammock - watch a few of Shug's videos for examples. You're not in a tent any more.

    ok so please help me out here a little. CCF= a foam pad will be better than using a thin air mattress. atleast thats how i am reading this. so then if you use that with like a 20 degree sleeping bag you should be ok for cooler weather like in the 40's or so? im new

    JEVanHorn-
    Comfort in cold temps is going to vary wildly. That said, I think what you listed would be plenty sufficient for 40F temps. One way to find out.

    Course, you could just go with the BB option and be done with it. Pads or underquilts are a breeze in the BBs.
    I'll apologize in advance for the dumb question... I'm new and still learning! Are you talking about a double layer Blackbird, with the insulation placed between the layers?

    Yep! I can deal with a pad when there is a layer of fabric between it and me. I don't at all like laying on top of them. The BB is one of the hammocks that allows for a double layer which makes it a great hammock for someone to buy as they slowly work their way into the underquilt world of expenses.
