      I always sleep on my side so my 2 inch thermarest works fine except for the condensation problem.
      Unfortanatly the zliner is not an option for me. my NA is from a transitional time that the zliner doesn't work with. thats why I am considering the underquilt.

      > I have an older NA with no insulation. The pockets do fine, with gear in them, in the summer, but when it's cold I use a pad. Condensation is a problem on the foot end of my sleeping bag where it hangs off the pad. I've only camped in my clark down into the teens. I've have been thinking of trying an under quilt to stop the condensation problem. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
