Back in April a friend and I kayaked down a river for 135 miles. We
camped out 4 nights along the way. I used a HH Asym and my friend
had an old canvas hammock. Two of the nights the temps were in the
upper 40's and the other two nights were 38 and 34 degrees. A down
sleeping bag and a Therma-rest pad did the trick. I was as warm as
the proverbial bug-in-a-rug. Both of us snore rather loudly and we
could put 50 feet between us without a problem.

You won't regret getting a hammock. I now have four. -Ken
