I have been hammock camping for a while. I use a self inflating therma-rest matt in chilly weather. Something I detected this fall was that my military fleece blanket doesn’t compress, and runs almost as well as the therma-rest. I did have the mid evening adjust but being able to wrap the blanket up added warmth and felt very nice. I have gone down to the low forties with simply the blanket( I get drunk at a friends camp, hadn’t planned on staying, but had my blanket and hammock in the trunk) and was comfy. Awarded I am a warm sleeper, but the blanket serves multiple purposes and within reason run. Has anyone else shared its own experience? Secondary lesson: Hammocks maintain drunks off the road.
