Even laying inside a sleeping bag won't fix this, this is because your weight compresses the insulation in the sleeping bag, making it much less efficient.
The gold standard for under insulation in a hammock is an underquilt (aka underblanket). Unfortunately even cheap underquilts cost about $100, and can be as much as $400.
Here is where the Snugpak Underblanket comes in. At the time of this review, it's $53. That is an amazing deal for an underquilt. The closest competition is the ENO ember 2 at $100. There are a few cottage made custom products that are also $100, none available on amazon with prime shipping.
So realistically this Snugpak underblanket has no real competition since it's half the cost of comparable products. That wouldn't matter if the underblanket wasn't any good. Fortunately, it's more than good. It's great for the price.
First thing you'll notice is the stuff sack. It has built in compression straps. You'll be able to pack this down to about the size of a volleyball. It's much bulkier than a down underquilt, however down underquilts start at around $250. The Snugpak is also heavier, but not more so than a typical sleeping bag.
When you remove the underblanket from the sack, you might be surprised at the color, in a good way. Unfortunately it's only available in an olive green, which I normally don't like. The color however is very nice. It's kind of a shimmering dark green. It has a diamond weave in the fabric, and looks awesome. I was bummed this only came in olive green when I bought it, but was super happy with the actual color of it.
Next comes hanging the underblanket. This is the biggest downside. There are 4 shock cords on each end. The center 2 on each end attach to your suspension, the outer 2 can be hung on the suspension or ridgeline (if you have one). The inner 2 support the hammock, the outer 2 provide side tension.
Coverage is good. I'm 6'1" and was able to get head to toe coverage. The underblanket was wide enough to cover my shoulders, and block some wind as well. Cottage made goods at twice this price are only 3/4 length, this is half the price and full length.
Once adjusted correctly the fit is pretty good. I added my own mini carabiners to help hang it, which I would recommend. There are some gaps at the ends which allows air to slip under you, however with more adjustment you could help fix this. I suggest using the underblanket in your yard to get a correct fit before taking it out in a trip camping.
Fit, finish, and hanging aside, this product needs to do one thing: keep you warm. I took this out on a night that was near freezing. I used normal sleeping clothes and a base layer, along with a 20 degree sleeping bag unzipped on top of me as a top quilt. I sleep awesome, and even overslept since I was so comfortable.
In summary, if you sleep in a hammock, you need an underquilt. There is no other option out there at this price, fortunately that's not a problem, since the Snugpak underblanket is genuinely awesome. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat. The only other option on Amazon near this price is the ENO ember 2 for $100. I've read it does not fit as well, and is only good to about 40 degrees at most. The snugpak was good at 32 degrees, and is half the price.
If you want an underquilt, buy this one.
Update 05/07/2016: Spend a significant amount of weekends with this in Ohio over the early Spring 2016. I was able to rock this solo into the 40's with some good thick socks, a long sleeve overshirt, and a cheap puffer vest I found at the thrift store. Seriously, not having to coordinate a blanket in a hammock + no cold butt and I am forever an underquilt convert. You just jump in your hammock and your off to sleep. Tip: Since you bring 2 pairs of socks on every backing trip (you do, don't you?), switch to your clean pair at night, and then put the thick socks over them. Probably common sense to most people, but hey just putting it out there.
Picked this up because I honestly can't justify spending $200-$300 for a down UQ. Don't get me wrong, I love down and is the only reason I survived the Boy Scouts (with my down bag) but I just can't justify a $200-$300 down UQ unless I'm doing a long haul AT/PCT run. For those people yeah, go down, save the weight (no hate intended, you people need to save as much weight as possible).
Onto the bag. Yeah it is warm. Is it 35 F warm... no. Not by itself at least. With their bushcraft blanket, I could do 35 F ONLY with great clothing (puffer jacket, thermals, double socks). I was warm as heck though in this setup.
Could you do 35 with this alone, no way. Could you do 55, yeah I have.
With bushcraft blanket your at about 35, but you better have good clothing.
Overall, temperature is sketchy at best, but for a cheap UQ this is a good UQ. Not a whole lot of options in this price range, and if can afford the weight then it is a win.
Weight: roughly 3 pounds.
- ditch their 6 ounce compression sack for a cheap nylon Walmart compression sack.
- ditch their fat "arse" shock cord on the ends for some 1/8 shock cord.
- lesson learned, grab an extra piece of shock cord (you do have that right?) and tie off each end for a good seal to stop heat from escaping... it helps tremendously until the 30's F. If you need to go lower, honestly start looking at down.
+ warm till about 50's
+ cheapest UQ you are going to find.
+ no water fear (this is actually a big plus)
My only real disappointment was that one of the loops tore apart under normal use (see photos). I was told by Amazon's online customer service that the warranty was expired (I've had it 45 days before I could use it). I called Amazon to discuss it, told I had to through the manufacturer in England, Snugpak's web site says they don't ship outside the UK. Long story short, I'm done trying to resolve the problem. If the seller can make it right I'll update the review.
Final word: you get what you pay for, and don't put any stress on the tie-outs.

This underquilt is heavier than advertised and isn't recommended for backpacking. Plus, it's huge after compressing it in a compression sack.Read more
