The Clark pockets are used by most to stuff clothing etc into and they do add insulation. Clark also makes a set of small pillow things to put in there and they offer insulation. Both of these seem like far too much effort to me when one UQ offers simple and effective, while being comfortable, insulation. When it gets cold enough you are going to need to add more insulation to the Clark anyway. Most that offered me advice (when the decision was being forged) started with the Clark (which they hated) and then went to the WBBB (which they love)...many selling the Clark at a massive loss BTW.
Certain hammocks offer better lay for different positions (back or side sleeper) but sorting that out is tough without a try. If you can attend a hanging gathering or find someone close to allow you a try of their hammock, you can get a better feel for fit.
I'd recommend you simply buy a WB Traveler double layer (around $70) as it is cold season now (no skeeter net required) and give it a try. If you don't like it a sale on HF will get it gone in a heart beat. That will most likely be my next hammock purchase (with adjustable webbing BTW). The two most popular brands are HH and WBBB and on HF the Blackbird is huge in popularity...as in when someone sells one used, it will not last half a day before getting grabbed up at minimal loss huge.
Firefly; the way it will actually be...rednecks in space, dealing with the mess made by urban progressives while being hounded by them and all without any goofy alien stuff. Shiney!
