was a topic of discussion some weeks back, along with the SPE.
I suggest getting the regular Downmat 7 and using Ed Speer's
Segmented Pad Extender with it. (The SPE "wings" provide the
shoulder protection, allowing use of regular-width pads. The 8x
version is for winter use.) It will weigh less, be less bulky to
pack, and is more flexible to set up for different tempratures. The
gray pads Ed sells are better for hammocking than the ones sold in
(The topmost photo shows an end-on view with a Downmat 7 inserted.)
