    Thanks for the review. It looks pretty darn comfy. I have a DIY cs UQ which is fine but I'm not opposed to using a pad. Wonder how it does in cold weather as far as having CBS? On a side note...nice view! We don't have "mountain" vistas in the lower Chesapeake.

    Just looked at the specs...it could have been a little wider at the shoulders....still looks comfortable.

    Yeah it could be a tad wider there, but so far it hasn't caused any issues on the ground or in a single layer hammock. I've yet to try it in my single layer Ridgerunner though, it's just been too **** humid at night here lately. Since I'm right on the water , WHEN ( more like IF) it cools off at night this time of year, the relative humidity goes through the roof. The few nights it did stay low enough with a lower than average temps I tested out 2 * gulp* tents... The Snugpak Ionosphere 1 person bivy tent and OneTigris Backwoods Bungalow 2 person baker style tent. Both are pretty **** neat, but nowhere near as comfortable as even my cheapest hammock lol. I needed a tent for when I go camping with my daughter and her scout troop and aren't able to hang lol. And when I got the tents, I needed a 4 season pad to go along with them since the only one I have is the cheap CCF pad that I used twice when I first started hanging several years ago now. And I punched a bunch of 1" holes in it after the first night to help with built up perspiration , so it's not exactly winter weather worthy anymore lol. I found this one on Amazon and figured it would be worth trying. Their website says it's insulated with foam inside each chamber so we'll see once October rolls around for its up for the task. I will continue to post here and on my video review as I use it during each season. I also just got the Snugpak Base Camp Ops Expedition sleeping bag since I don't have a winter bag anymore, only TQ's. It's rated for 10 with a push to 0, so I'm excited to see how the pad does with the bag and tents as well as the pad in my hammocks this fall/winter. Oh, and the Snugpak Base Camp Ops inflatable pillow and Snugpak Snuggy pillow..... Gotta have a pillow to right? Lol. YEah, I'm a HUGE Snugpak fan...
