- Feb 2, 2008Air trapped in a trash bag placed in under a hammock works real good
if something like a crinkled up space blanket in in the bag, which
will help the air become more "dead". I imagine air filled bags alone
would be better than nothing, compared to air that is completely open.
But still not very good except when compared to nothing and a nice
cold breeze of outside air blowing under your back.
