    I like using my peak ridgeline shelf/pocket that comes with the Bonefire hammocks, but making your own ridgeline organizer is the best way to go to have pockets where you want them. If you don't mind...

    I use and recommend the 1/8" pad for taking my 30F Bonefire Hammock 10F lower. I would imagine that the 1/4" would work well as that foam conforms to your body very easily and does not slide much.
