neo,
Have you tried this Hammock in cold weather yet, I would think that pad pocket will provide a good bit of insulation.

I like my HH Delux Explorer, but I can only use it in the summer time as I'm not about to pay several hundred dollars in under quilts and such. The Web site indicates the Hammock could be used for cold weather, since you have one I thought I would ask.

Also with you're weight in the Hammock is the Zipper hard to close?

Thanks Pappy
