Maybe we should nickname the Blackbird the "Bermuda Triangle of Hammocks." Pads just disappear in the cavernous interior...
Pads will buckle when you lay on them but it shouldn't be that drastic of a change, especially if you've used these pads in other hammocks with no issues. Why don't you bring it inside the hammock with you and get it situated? That way you can see exactly what it's doing and the solution may be obvious. Then you'll know what it should
look like when you put it back inside the pad pocket.
I bet it's something to do with how that shape mates with the pad pocket, as WBG suggests.
“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
