Fullcount: Thanks for more very useful info on the fascinating subject of the use of a pad in the pad pocket of a JRB BMBH. What is unique about your post is that you used a 20" pad! Is there any other hammock out there where any one claims that not only is it just as comfy with a pad, but that the over all comfort is even improved? I have long been claiming that the BMBH is hands down the best hammock for me to use a pad with. But there actually are a few that seem to think it is equal to an UQ in comfort, and even a couple or 3 ( like you ) who feel the overall comfort is actually improved. Amazing!
Did you find any comfort downsides using the pad? Sweat or condensation? Obviously shoulder comfort was improved, but what about over all comfort? Any decrease? About the same, better?
Using that 20" pad, did you have much trouble with cold shoulders or any thing cold? Have you tried a CCF pad?
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
