HAMMOCK CAMPING TARPS And while there are tarps designed specifically for hammocks, nearly any tarp will work so long as it provides the coverage you are looking for. It is generally agreed that full-coverage tarps, or “winter” tarps are best for four-season camping when you need maximum protection from the elements.

Some tarps have an asymmetrical pattern which matches the shape of the hammock, but the majority of hammock campers use a hex-shaped tarpaulin, many of which have a catenary shape for strength against wind and reduction in size and weight. The diamond-shape tarpaulin is also used by some.
You can use a pad in a hammock, too, though it might not nestle neatly into the hammock's shape. One option is to get an accessory sleeve to help stabilize your pad. Another tactic is to deflate an air pad slightly to help it better conform to the shape of your hammock.
In a hammock, you'll need bottom insulation, when you used to sleep on the ground this was taken care of by your sleeping pad (inflatable or closed cell foam), and if you like you can use it in your hammock as well. ... An underquilt is used as bottom insulation as a replacement for a sleeping pad.
I couldn't put an exact degree rating on it, but yes, Hammocks are colder than tents. If all you have is a sleeping bag and a hammock, you will wind up being a lot colder on the pressure points (butt, feet, elbows, etc.). However, it's relatively easy to make it so you can stay warm in your hammock.
