      What to do if you still find the Z-Rest (or yourself) sliding and
      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.
      Remarkably flexible.

      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
      splints.

      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!
