ok.. how bout this idea for a pad
- Greetings ghman777:
Thermarest pads are great. I have one & love it.
However the thermarest is an air-filled open-cell foam
pad. In my camping (tent & hammock) experience an
air-flled open-cell pad isn't the best insulator to
have next to your sleeping body. I've also found that
extra padding isn't needed when sleeping in a hammock.
Your idea was excellent, just perhaps not the best
solution for a hammock. Keep brainstorming because
together we will come up w/ a cold-weather insulation
system for hammocks, perhaps this year.

- I doubt if Therm-a-Rest would be interested till more hammock users
showed interest by writing the company. I have a Therm-a-Rest pad
that is body shaped, It is about 30 inches at the shoulders. It has
a bag the zips to it. No longer in production. It was made by Yak
Works but the pad says Therm-a-Rest. I have used the pasd several
times with th top that came with it. I am afraid to use it with my
down bags as half of the zipper is still on the pad. A pad without
the zipper would work with different bags. Look at the second
picture down in this report to see my bag. I have thought about
getting a coustom down top made for it. As you can see in the
picture (second picture down in the report)the bag has very little
Coy Boy PS the D.A.M. form Stevenson is shaped similar and better
for really cold weather. From the few I have heard from that have
tried the D.A.M. it is a great idea but inflating is slow and the
valve on one guys leaked. He patched it somhow and it works fine.
I believe our own list founder Ed has one.
