    Btw, in a earlier post I complained a bit about Hennessy sending me the wrong straps. They were kind to send me the 42" straps also without any additional cost. Good customer service.
    Ha ha, well the film was ment as a respond to some of my readers of my blog (also in danish).

    I have never experienced any slippage. Been doing it that way for years...

    Cheers!

    Came back from a one night hiking trip. I had the hammock with me and I tried Fimbuls tying method worked flawlessly on one end. I set the hammock on a downhill. The other end I couldn't get high enough in the tree. My straps were too long so I used the method I practiced earlier.

    I had excellent luck with the night temps as now I could get proper feeling of the insulation.
    Lowest night temp was just at 5 celcius (40 fahrenheit) which is about the recommended limit for the 4 Season System. There was no noticable wind and on top I was using my quilt with -11 Celcius limit.
    I woke up early in the morning as my butt was too cold to keep me asleep. I wasn't really cold, but it felt uncomfortable so I added my hiking pants as an insulation under the ocf-pad. After that I didn't feel any coldness.

    I think adding pretty much anything under the ocf pad helps bring the pad closer to your back. It felt like I got warmer from my legs as well.
    They recommend laying the extra items on top of the pad. I wonder why is that? You would be laying on top of your zippers, belt buckles and so on. Under the pad is the way to go as I see it.

    All in all great experience. I slept better than I ever had in a hammock. I had lots of room to toss and turn. I slept on my side and on my back and didn't experience any discomfort from any of the positions.
    I didn't have any condensation issues either.

    Next time I'll throw my STS rainfly/rainponcho under the pad to see if it add anything to the condensation. I'm always carrying it so would be a good extra layer to use.

    Glad it worked out for you.
    I have used a poncho liner on top of the ocf pad, with great success. The "stickiness" of the pad, helps keeping extra insulation in place. If placed under the pad, it tends to bundle up in the lowest place IMO.

    Oh I see. Didn't think of that.. Placing stuff under the ocf pad you can only add warmth for your butt and back.
