      Air 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.
