      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.
