    Post Underpad

    Just got my Hennesy Expedition Asym and after a couple of test nights in the house, the verdict is that I love it! I am now looking at a Mac Cat tarp for a larger footprint, and will do an outside test run very soon.

    My question is regarding the underpad or bottom insulation. Has anyone ever used something such as a Pacific Outdoor Equipment Uber-Lite Sleeping Pad? Will something that does not cover your foot area be warm enough? I have a Thermarest Prolite 4, and also a few of the old Army foam mats, but I have no experience to know which way to go.

    i've not used that pad, but i've herd nothing but good things about their pads.
    as for the length, some folks use a shorter pad in milder temps. if they feel the need , put something else under their calves for a little extra protection... like clothes or a frameless pack if it's dry.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    I use a pad and I always make sure that I have a small pad with me just for my feet - where the heal of your foot rests against the hammock will be a cold spot without something like a small pad under the heal
