- Dec 6, 2008I guess I meant, "Would my ThermaRest work?" Skip the "regular" part. I use a Women's ProLite 3. It's pretty narrow, I guess. How about a 22" wide closed-cell foam pad?

>I don't think there is a regular ThermaRest, there is more to it than
you might realize. There are quite a variety of ThermaRest pads and
the amount of insulation varies between the various pads. Some might
be enough by themselves while others might not... some are only
adequate for summer temperatures, others are adequate for sleeping on
snow, and many fall in between.
Most people do find that they need something wider using pads in
hammocks because of the wrapping nature of a hammock on your shoulders
and how that tends to compress sleeping bags or quilts in that area.
Well placed clothes, stuff sacks or a segmented pad extender help with
