You really need 2 in a cross pattern, the cross upper for the shoulders.
Still if you are a flip flopper you will move off of it eventually and find a cold spot.
Thats the part I hate about pads. At least with an UQ and a pad extender you dont find those extreme cold spots when moving around.
I double my GG 1/8 pad and use it under my feet.
Weighs 2.5-3oz per so 6 oz for two.
Probably good to 50-55dF if you are a warm sleeper and can stay on it but its short so your still need something for your feet and lower legs.
I use a WBBB double layer, but I was thinking of putting the pad in the TQ so it will minimize shifting. Have not tried this method yet. Good thinking on making a slot just for the pad.....
