Re: Hammock Camping Sleeping Pad.
Messagewhen it gets colder outside 45 or below I don't want to say better but my sleep isn't interrupted as much. The few cold nights I slept in my hammock (I didn't use a pad) I woke up every 2 hours to go use the bathroom. I didn't even drink a lot of water before I went to bed..... go figure.-Jason SIf a man hiking alone in the woods has a thought and his wife is not around to hear him...... Is he still wrong?

I only have one experience of comparing the two.I was beside a lake once, and it was too cold to sleep in my HH, so I got out and prepared to spend the rest of the night sitting on a rock. The rock was still warm from the day, but a bit hard, so I got my pad out. Gradually, I migrated lower and lower until I was on the pad on the ground with my quilt on top. It felt warmer. It was warm enough to sleep, anyway.Does anybody have any experience that convinces them that in identical (or the same) situations it's warmer on the ground?Bear-----Original Message-----

Subject: RE: Hammock Camping Sleeping Pad.Jason,The only reason I use a pad is for the cold, if I am up at 10,000 ft in the summer, it could easily get down below 40degrees at night time. Where I live, the temperature this morning was 8 F. So I would say the pad is for the cold air coming up under your hammock. If it is cold out, you would be warmer just sleeping on the ground.Marge
