I didn't use a leg pad, but I always have a stuffsack with some extra clothes in there that I use under my knees when I'm on my back, and between my knees when I'm on my side. Technically it provides insulation when it's under my knees but I don't plan for it that way. I didn't have any cold spots under my legs after I clipped the corners over the ridgeline.
So I didn't have 10-12" between the corners...there were probably 4-5", including the grosgrain, mini-biners and some shockcord.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
