Re: Double layered hammock vs. Cold weather....
- Hi Tony,
The double layer as I thought about it was really built to be able to
use a pad for cool/cold weather without having to sleep directly on
the pad in the hammock. I found that somewhat uncomfortable and it
kept moving around too much for my liking.
I believe it could be used in colder weather by putting some other
rather uncompressable insulation under the pad in the double bottom,
though it should not be so thick as to cause too much of the weight
to be borne by the single bottom layer. This might include perhaps a
quarter to a half inch of otherwise unusued clothes, for example.
