    For me, a pad makes the bottom of my (double layer) RR feel wider. It certainly doesn't change the flatness from head to toe. I prefer lying in something that feels wider, so I like the pad. If...

    Sounds like you might like a gear hammock, to have a protected place to spread out gear (in addition to Tyvek or something under your hammock).

    For those of us who sleep on our sides (or stomach), the Ridgeruner gives a really comfortable night's sleep. With an inflatable air mattress, its like being on a cot swinging in the air.

    Haven't found a need to vent my Lynx, but you could easily add string or something to the small carabiner attachments (at either or both ends/sides), to create space between the UQ and the RR.
