19542RE: [Hammock Camping] which is best, inflatable or foam sleeping mat
- Nov 10, 2008I prefer closed-cell foam pads. Starting with a pad that's about 2 x 6
feet (60 x 180 cm), I cut the pad in half to create two pieces 2 x 3
feet (60 x 90 cm). I roll these and put them inside my backpack to form
the internal frame of the pack. I put them in the hammock either
side-by-side, or in a T shape. This is the best value for under-body
insulation I've found. Having two pieces makes it possible to create
insulation that's wide enough to cover my shoulders, but that can still
be packed comfortably.
I don't know about using them in an HH though, as that design makes it
somewhat more difficult to manage what's underneath you.
