I imagined that since it was June in Delaware, it would be warm enough at night to sleep in a hammock without any insulation besides my baselayer and a jacket. MISTAKE! It’s always a good idea to bring insulation, even if it’s hot during the day. ENO makes great hammock blankets that are fitted perfectly to their hammocks, but I was reluctant to add to my gear-haul. I won’t make that mistake again.
