the pad in place. This allows me to inflate the pad while I'm in my
hammock with minimal fuss. I just lay on my back put the pad on top
of me blow the sucker up.
Do you have any kayaking experience? I find that sliding my pad
around in the hammock while I'm on the pad is similar in feel to my
kayak. I sit on my butt and then sort-pf scoot the pad just like I
would scoot a kayak through swallow water snags.
Also, I find that it is alot easier to get in the bag if I unzip the
bag BEFORE I get in the hammock. I just sit on the bag, scoot it
into place (lay down to test location and adjust if necessary),
slide in, zip-up, and dose-off.
Finally, it is much easier to zip the bag when the pad is fully
inflated. When the pad bends in the hammock the zipper bends too
which makes it hard to zip. you just sort-of have to flatten it out
as you go.
Those are my tips. Enjoy : )
