16804Re: dry and warm under the back
- Feb 3, 2007Hi,
My solution involves a bit of work.
I make my own packs. The "pad" I put inside my double layer hammock is
a pack designed to unfold. The walls of the pack have closed cell foam
sandwiched between ripstop nylon (the inner layer is breathable). This
pack requires a pack cover, which I use as a gear hammock. Unfolded it
looks something like this:
| | |______
wide part is 32 inches wide (40 long), and the narrow is 14 inches.
Over all length is 71 inches. It folds into a 14"x9"x31" box, held
together with hook and loop and some webbing. It weighs about a pound,
which is not bad for pack and pad together.
I am working on an improved version, which I intend to post, when I
have the bugs worked out.
