      hey becky... welcome. i`ve just discovered the joys of hammock camping this year & i love it so much, i have installed eye bolts in my bedroom walls & sleep in it nightly (single guy). ken`s right, depending on a persons metabolism, you will likey begin to fell the cool night air around 70 degrees. if it`s not much cooler than that you`ll brobably do fine w/ a pad under you (for insulation) & a sleeping bag or quilt to cover you. but there`s differant ways to stay warm in a hammock. others on this group can tell you more, but in the mean time go to speer hammock`s web site to find useful information & links to more useful info ( like ed speer`s book "hammock camping" ). also at the speer site you will see a link to "risks" web site where you`ll find lots of good info. i havent seen it yet, but rick (known as RISK) has a new book "a wildly successful 200 mile hike" which is no dought full of great practical info. as far as the hammock being like a bivy, i think you`ll find it to
      replace the lower part of a bivy, but youll still need protection from the top, as in a tarp. thanks...slowhike

      Is this like a bivy where you need a sleeping bag? Or does it depend
      on the season?
