ccf pads. Purchase or make an SPE. Because the hammock will tend to
"wall" you in (Think the letter "U"), your knees/elbows get cold
against the sides when you toss & turn or side-sleep. If you are not
familiar with the SPE, take a look at Mr. Speer's site. BTW, the SPE
is designed to hold the *** 20" **** wide pads. Wider than that will
be problematic in the hammock causing you to be way too high.

"firm" in 5 or 6 puffs.

version. What kind of hammock are you using...? Try putting a rigid
piece of cardboard in there that is 26" wide and I think you will see
what I am saying.
