    My question is how does the pad work with the opening on the Hennessy?

    I have the HH ultralight backpacker a-sym
    Go ahead and give 2QZQ 50$ for the zippermod and you will love pads and HH again. I hated the birth canal entry with pad.

    Thanks shug.

    I was wondering is it best to use my 0' C / 32' F liteloft thinsulate bag or a wool army surplus blanket. with the GG 1/4" pad. is that going to be good for early spring late fall weather?

    Anyone ever put the Speer SPE in between the layers of a double layer hammock? Shug? I've used one in a single layer HH but have a DL BB now and thought I'd give it a try unless there is a good reason not too. Might help keep it situated better.

    I'm not familiar with the army wool blanket. I think I would go bag .... you can zip in if it gets below 32F. Bring a hood or good toque with either.
