Re: [BackpackGearTest] Hennessy Testing
- I have the same problem. As someone else pointed out, Target sells a 1/2" x 26" full length pad for around $15.00. It helps down to around 25 or 30. Much below that and I'm looking at the bag hanging under the hammock solution. The hammock solves so many other problems for me that even if I have to carry an extra bag or make one just for the hammock it will still be worth it to me.Jerry----- Original Message -----From: David SpellmanSent: Tuesday, November 21, 2000 11:10 PMSubject: [BackpackGearTest] Hennessy TestingOkay, forget 20" wide pads and anything less than full-length if it's
I tried one night in the tent and one in the hammock, with the same
sleeping gear. Comfortable in the tent, cold in the hammock, and the
problem was obvious -- when you're lying on a pad in a tent, you're not
touching the sides of anything. In the hammock, you contact the sides of
the hammock, because they sort of rise up to touch you.
For me, the solution is going to have to be something wider than 20"...

never used them so I don't know if they'll freeze into a plank or
anything. Anyone use this stuff in winter?. Might not be enough
insulation for some.
