Has anyone tried using dual HH underpads for added insulation ?
(as those things are pretty thin (or atleast thinner than i thought they would be))

You could add as many pads as you think you need. I have no way of knowing if 2 pads would be twice as warm as one or not, and I have not tested two full length pads, but I feel sure it would be a lot warmer. But how much?
What I have done is add an HH kidney and torso pad. This at least doubles (or more) thickness right where you need it most. And it is indeed much warmer.
Or you can just put whatever is left over- that won't be needed as part of your sleep system top warmth- between the one pad and UC. Like fleece jackets, or even down vests, etc.. MUCH warmer.
Don't forget the space blanket. Also, I have found that one pad to be a lot warmer than it looks, especially when used with the space blanket.
