How did you like the pad in the BMBH compared to the same pad in other hammocks?
IT really does look like a Russian hat when rolled up! Mine is the same vintage.

I'm not sure I like the pad with the BMBH (or at least the jury is still out). It seems to make it feel like the center of gravity is higher. It is very effective though. Those surplus pads are stiff, I'm going to try it with a Ridgerest (narrower though). I haven't tried it any other hammock, although I did use an Exped-7 DAM with a Hennessy Explorer UL before I had an UQ.
