      I have camped in my hammock in mostly warm/hot (and humid) temps. Coming
      from Holland I grew accustomed to the warmer temps and I was comfy mostly
      sleeping on top of a blanket. Or a combination of 2 sarongs underneath me.

      Last weekend I slept in Luxembourgh Ardennes while appearantly it had been a
      bit below zero. My compadres had some ice on there t*nts/bags while I was
      comfy and toasty in my HH with a No Sniveler underquilt, a CC pad IN my
      sleeping bag.

      So I reckon you will need some form of under isolation... but try what will
      work for you. Hee my neigbours think I am weird too when experimenting in
      the backyard. Better to make mistakes there then ruining a weekend hike.

      Just my 2 neighbourly cents ;-)

      It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most
      intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
