The first thing to look for in setting up your cold weather hammock camp is from which direction the wind coming. Determine it's origin and hide from it. Put your hammock behind hills, trees or anything else that will effectively block the wind. You can also rig most sleeping bags to wrap around your hammock thus keeping heat in. With your ability to hide in nooks you will be able to avoid the biting winds that tent campers must endure.
