You hit on the only major issue with a Hennesy Hammock. I also use the A-sym
and love it. The insulation issue is still undergoing much research, much by
persons within this group. It seems there is no ideal solution as of yet. If
I follow the many posts correctly, the Thermarest or trimmed closed cell foam
pads seem to be the most common current solutions. I'm a Thermarest
(Ultralite 3/4) man myself.
