      Another option for having a head source under you in a cone or skirt
      type enclosure is a dog. I know everyone doesn't have one and I'm
      not saying go out and get one but for those of us who hike with our
      dogs this might be a good solution for several reasons. When I
      purchased my HH I pretty much new I would only be able to use it on
      trip I took with out my little pup. This leaves me with having to go
      back to tenting when I bring her, yuck! So I have been running
      ideas on how to still be in the hammock, bring her and make sure we
      are both comfy, safe and warm. I know she would only be happy very
      near me so under is a good spot. Making a cone or skirt under the
      hammock would help with the heat stuff for my underside and give her
      a place to lay that is close to me, warm, and out of the elements.
      We'd both be happy, theoretically speaking. This is just an idea
      right now.
