    Lawson Blue ridge hammock in the winter?

    Was wondering if anyone has had a lawson hammock out in cold temps. Wondering what was used for insulation. I've got a buddy coming on a trip who needs a flat lay, he typically sleeps on his side or stomach and when he tried my eno just couldn't get it to work. I have a lawson which when guide out is stable and as flat as a cot. Debating on just laying a CCF, insultex and a thermarest. Just wondering what others have done?

    I have one and have used it several times. I even took in on a canoe trip where temps got to 28. I had used a coleman pad to lay on. It worked nicely, was not cold at all.

    Hope this helps.

    I just picked up a Lawson Blue ridge hammock as my first hammock and I've been thinking about that as well.
    One idea I had was to pick up an inexpensive rectangle recreational sleeping bag and see if I could attached it under neither with bungees going up and over or running a ridgeline to attach them to.

    Obviously an underquilt would help you keep warm underneath. I think with the cover on it helps trap the heat and stays a little warmer then other hammocks.

    I have one and it seems to me it would be very difficult to attach an UQ to it. I don't hink it would snug up to the sleeper enough. I think it would allow a draft at the ends. I never tried it though, so not sure.

    I had better luck with pads. The ccf pads are ok, but I like a half deflated inflatable sleeping pads better. You can get a quilt to fit right on there, but it really takes some tweaking.

    I have no problems with my Jarbridge UQ. It snugs up just fine.
