I'm a dedicated hammock user. Hennessy ultralight backpacker. Couldn't imagine sleeping in anything else unless I had to due to an emergency or a lack of trees. I use mine with a hootchie slung diagonally because I find the original tarp to be a little too small for personal admin outside the hammock when you're stuck in drizzle or rain for a few days. I haven't yet come up with a solid solution to the cold back syndrome but I've been getting some ideas from different websites and forums. At the moment, I just sleep on a 3/4 mat which doesn't interfere with getting into and out of the hammock.
