But carrying too much weight on my back doesn't appeal, so:
Chewbacca, how much does the BMBH deluxe/Neoair All season combo weigh?
I typically sleep on my side with my legs extended, so I'm thinking the BMBH with the NeoAir pad may be just what I need.
Those having and issue or concern with the sides getting a little chilly. Have you seen this from ENO. Its called HotSpot Hammock Sleeping Pad Wings. Should be fairly easy to make one cheap. Course you could also purchase them from REI Link.
I have one (ENO Hotspot). Works OK with a gathered end hammock and standard width (20 in) pad. Won't work with a BMBH deluxe unless you use the pad inside the hammock and you don't use the sleeve intended for use with pads. Also does not work with NEOAIR All Season because of the width of the All-Season pad.
VATriker, gotcha. I forgot the Deluxe has the pad pocket & you all where using it. Wonder if you could make something similar that would hang down from the walls on the inside of the hammock.
By the way, really like your setup, pretty darn sweet!
This is my current section hiking setup too - BMBH with full size All Season NeoAir in the pocket. I would say I have gone down to mid 30's with it so far. Just the pad and a Western Mountaineering Ultralite sleeping bag rated for 20 degrees. The bag is a full zip so i use it like a quilt. I start with the pad fully inflated and then let air out once in the hammock. The pad is a pain to get into the pocket because it has a slip resistent coating on it. So far the pad has been warm no matter how much air has been let out.
