    I use an Xtherm and its great. I prefer the pad in the summer and the UQ in the winter as I like to lay on my side against the side walls of the RR. In the summer this vents quite nicely but in the...

    I use my camp stool to get my feet off the ground. It takes the pressure off the side of the hammock and gives you something to rock back and forth on. Very comfortable., considering.

    Can't comment on the xite but the xtherm will actually help your shoulder squeeze. You will lay higher up from the bottom of the hammock and the extra inches gives you a quite a bit more room. No...

    Since the Xtherm adds a few inches of height, it evens out any shoulder squeeze you might get from removing the middle spreader bar. It's actually quite roomier IMO.

    No problem. The first time I tried it, I left the middle section of the spreader bar in and I sat (for my taste) way too high in the hammock and it had a "recliner" feel to it. Wasn't a fan of that...

    I used an xtherm with a Ridgerunner last night. If you are using the same hammock try leaving out the middle section of the head spreader bar. It will stabilize everything. Hanging at a slightly...

    Thermarest xterm large. Horizontal air chambers. Take the middle head end bar out and you're good to go. I find it more comfortable than using an UQ. Super warm. Deflate till you hit that sweet spot.

    If you are pretty good at making things, an APEX UQ is very easy to make. Much better than using a pad IMHO. You will find the secret to a great hang is getting the lower insulation right.
