Well now, that is amazing! I have managed to roll the pad up and get it back in it's sack before, but it has always just been way too much trouble to fool with. So, once I get the HHSS on the hammock, I have just left it on the hammock until it is too hot to use it. Then I just stuff everything- sometimes TQ included- into a large stuff sack or just into my pack. Other times, I took only the pad out, and put it into a dry sack with other items, then compressed it all, and put the hammock and UC into snake skins. But your method of getting it back in it's original sack never occurred to me.
