and 10 oz,the pad i paid 12.00,wiehs less than 7 oz.i camped in 30
degree windy weather,i only used my hammock during summer months this
year.i use a hh ultralite back packer with a jacks are better
oversized silnylon tarp 60.00,i removed the standard 1 inch x 42 tree
hugger straps and replaced them with 1 x 66 in tree huggers,also for
winter camping i am adding a jacks are better under weather skirt.
