I bought a hammock to get off the ground and relieve pressures that is felt when sleeping on the ground. Adding a pad made the hammock stiffer, like I was sleeping on the ground. It seems to me, the pad defeats the purpose of a hammock. So far, I've enjoyed sleeping comfortably with my Hammock Gear underquilt. I'll even toss in a mummy style sleeping bag to sleep on top of, adding more fluffy comfort. Just thinking about it makes me wanna set it up right now and go to sleep in the backyard...
Everyone sleeps differently. Don't panic if it doesn't work out the first time. Have a backup plan in case it doesn't work out. Learning is half the battle.
