    Yeah, I'd like to go quilt as some point. My sleeping bag has a foot vent, so I've actually strung up the hammock inside the bag before. I've had some recent back pain this year and was going to give the air pad a try to see if the extra rigidity helps. Thanks for the input.

    My suggestion would be getting some of the stuff you put in cupboards to protect the wood/keep dishes from sliding. Would be non-permanent, and if you put it under high pressure spots (butt, upper back) I think it would do the trick. Just a couple bucks to try out, probably worth it! This is the stuff, but you might already have some around the house you can test with before you get anything new. Would probably add some very minor insulative properties but I'm sure that's negligible.

    I second Alphabennetts' post. I used it on a DIY reflectix pad and it worked great.

    Excellent idea! How would you keep it from shifting/clumping during the night?

    I think you probably wouldn't have much of an issue, but if you found it to be one I'd consider permanently installing it on the pad using silicon.

    Do a Costco DIY Underquilt. For $30 you'll sleep much better. If you get the two-pack online, make a TQ out of the other one. That's what I did. Super easy and effective.

    That's a great idea worth trying. Thanks

    Well, I tried the new pad this weekend and shifting wasn't too much of an issue. The pad stayed fairly well put. It did exactly what I needed. It provided some extra support for my back, contoured to the shop of the hammock, and cut the wind and heat loss coming from underneath the hammock. Which is exactly what I needed. It packed up really small. All without the added bulk and weight of an under quilt or an insulated pad. And it didn't overheat me like the underquilt does in these warmer temperatures. I was quite comfy.

    The next time I may try the one suggestion of cutting few small patches of shelf liner to slide between the hammock and pad just to see how they do.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

    The good ol' SPE (https://www.rei.com/product/830279/e...ping-pad-wings) really helps to keep a pad manageable.

    I appreciate the response, but it doesn't address my question. I'm not asking about pad alternative, as the pad isn't just for warmth. It's primarily for back comfort. Thanks anyways
