It's been my experience that as long as the water does not blow inside
the hammock you should stay dry as long as you are on a pad. The
water I've had blow up onto the underside of the hammock and travel
down my straps ran down the material to the lowest point (my butt)and
dripped off to the ground. After aborting a canoe trip on the third
rainy day because of this problem (and having no pad) I did some
sprinkler testing and now always carry a pad just for this reason.
Hope this helps.
