I recently made a reflectix pad 36 inches wide, 72" long. I slept
directly on it the other night with temps about 40 deg and a number
of showers coming through. I also used a wind shell outside the
hammock. Stayed warm and dry, like a bug in a rug. (Wearing a flece
top and polypro bottoms.) The nice thing about this pad is there is
never a worry about it scooting out from under me and leaving a cold
spot. To pack it, I just fold it once along the long axis and then
roll loosely as a "frame" inside the pack.
This was the most comfortable night I have spent in a hammock yet.
What a hoot it was to be suspended above the squishy wet on the
ground. Snow was melting, the first inch or two of ground is soaked
with water, in the rain, everything was covered with a bit of run-off
because every surface was saturated with water... And I was
comfortable above all this, out of the mud, out of the water,
sleeping without a worry in the world... Hammock camping at its

Here is a pic of my pad. May be the one you are refuring too.
I put a fleece blanket on top of the reflectix. I hand sewed it on.
Look at this pic. For referance the boars on my deck are 6 in (5 3/4
in rality and the pad goes across 7 boards. It is aproc 22 inches at
the foot end. When you make your I'd suggest about 34 inches cut
similar. try this out befor you attach any fleece because this
might be to wide for you. Once satisfied with the pads shape sew on
the fleece and use the scraps for the cozy you were asking Nancy
