    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.

    I am very comfortable on my side. The Ridgerunner is very versatile in the many ways you can lay in it. Like you said, can't do fetal, but I'm more of a "half-way" side sleeper anyway.
