I'm not sure I understand your question. I routinely carry a hammock
set-up that will keep me comfortable into the mid teens. It is light
and practical for ultralight packing.
Insulation includes: down quilt and closed cell foam pad. It is
surrounded by a single layer TravelPod. For really cold temperatures, I
sometimes use my tarp or other pack contents as insulation between the
TravelPod and my hammock. To go below that, I need to carry about an
extra 10 ounces of insulation in the form of my WarmHammock. That
set-up has gotten me considerably below zero. (And I sleep pretty cold.)
Looking at your question again, I guess the answer to how far I a
willing to go is: I am willing to sew my own hammock and to practice in
the cold to get it right.
