    Pardon the beginner question but I recently purchased my first hammock (Blackbird w/ double bottom) and was wondering if these pads will fit between the two bottom layers ? Are they only designed to be used inside a sleeping bag or inside the hammock? Thanks

    They'll fit between the two layers. Watch Shug's video on using air pads with a hammock - his tip is to not inflate it all the way full. I've tried this and worked wonders. I made the rookie mistake my first time out with an air pad and blowing it till it was full and it kept moving around, slipping, and sliding. If it's not full, it has a chance to contour around your body.

    The Static V Insulated Lux even fits between the layers of a Warbonnet Ridgerunner. The pad bends into a half pipe shape pretty nicely. In side sleeping mode, both my back and my knees were insulated (Lux version). Great pad!

    I've taken mine down to 37 several times. But I will admit that when I strayed off the Klymit it got chilly. That's why I made an SPE for my Klymit. It will easily get me down to 30f.

    My hopes were it would take me to 0, not to 30f... Well, my expectations were my problems, not Klymit. But then again, when people say 'it's good for winter camping' they should explain if it's winter in the South with some rain, or in the north with a little bit more winterish temperatures.

    Are most of you posting these temps with the Klymit V using any sort of underquilts? I'll be hammocking in Sedona this mid-March and only have an Eno Doublenest and temps go down to 45. Looking for an affordable option, between the Ember underquilt or an air pad like this, and going to invest in some sort of affordable $40ish sleeping bag.

    I'm not sure which of the 3 models I should go with for my doublenest. Is there a substantial difference in insulation abilities between the non-insulated, insulated, and Lux models? Any recommendations on an entry-level sleeping bag for a 6' 155lb dude are welcome as well!

    Man, it looks like there's a standard and insulated versions of the larger Lux pad as well. Would that lower R-value of the non-insulated pad be alright for 40 degrees?

    You definitely need an insulated one. Lux would be better if car camping, but regular one is way cheaper on amazon.

    Agreed about getting the insulated version. Don't waste money on the other versions. I bought the Insulated Luxe one for $65 on ebay. It was refurbished and shipped directly from Klymit. You won't need an UQ at 45f with an insulated Klymit. Just know that your range of movement will limited in order to stay warm on the air pad.

    Gotcha. I sprung for the Insulated Lux for $70 refurbished on eBay, I should have offered a little bit less haha! Do you think that I'll be alright with my generic polyfilled sleeping bag, coupled with the lux in my double nest for 45 degrees? I'll probably bring along a blanket and I suppose I can always layer up.
