slipping around in the hammock? Stick the Z-Rest to your body.
If you like to sleep on your back, and want a warmer torso: Take a big
piece of Z-Rest (6, 7 or 8 sections) and put it on your back. Use a
belt or (elastic) rope and it will stay put. Like a harness.
Take two section pieces, and put them around the backside of your arms
and lower legs. Use rubber bands, and they will stay there - like
Other multi functional uses?
You can walk or sit with the big piece on your back (or front) as
protection against really cold & windy weather. You can sit on the two
section piece. And use both as comfy pad between your ultra light
backpack and your back (I have permanent elastic bands on my backpack
for that purpose). If you want to sleep on the floor, use some Duct
tape to re-create a full length Z-Rest.
Want less condensation? Make tiny holes in the Z-Rests valleys with a
red hot needle or nail.
Have fun experimenting!
