So eventually I will be getting a nice underquilt but until then I was thinking of getting some current thoughts and experiences with pads.

What do you guys think of closed cell foam? Are they easy to store? I think for my first trip I'm going to be looking for a pad thats easy to compact and store and easy to slip into that doulbe layer.

Do reflective pads end up making you too hot?

The trip is in the second week of March. It's typically warmer (70's) with cooler nights(40's+) however being Oklahoma, it could just as easily be very hot or very cold.

Again, not particularily concerned with weight due to the storage capacity of my kayak but maximizing that space is going to be key.
