    I recently tried using a pad in my single layer Ridgerunner with pretty good results. The pad I used was the 10 Ecotec Hybern8 insulated inflatable. It's pretty inexpensive on Amazon, has a design that works well in a hammock and has a temp rating of 10F. It changed the lay a slightly, but not that much and I was still pretty comfortable. I've also stacked 3 different combinations/styles of quilts on the Ridgerunner : a regular gathered end style CDT UQ + a CDT Lynx clone , the Lynx clone + a DIY Snugpak (synthetic) jungle blanket ⅞ length UQ and the gathered end CDT + the jungle blanket UQ. All 3 combinations worked great.

    Never hurts to double up. Sometimes it helps psychologically.

    It's just gear. Nothing wrong with acknowledging its limitations.
    Maybe that explains why I always found my original BMBH- as you say it wraps the most- so easy to insulate. On my first try I was plenty warm with the original MWUQ at 10F. Of course it is rated at 0F and some have used it lower, still, for me to be warm in a hammock at 10F, through a long night, with out having to add CCF pads felt like quite the accomplishment for me at the time. Plus I had the unanswered question: could I have gone lower? However, another time with the same hammock and UQ I was not quite warm enough at 27F(wet/rain to snow/windy) until I added my separate down Marmot sleeping bag hood(about 3" thick) about 0200. After that, toasty warm until morning.

    Also, in my BMBH UL- which does not wrap as much as the original BMBH, but still wraps more than a WBRR- I was also nice and warm at 25F in cotton PJs with a JRB MW3(20-25F) on bottom and a sniveler(same rating) on top, and of course with my JRB hood. But - as you say- the less wide aspect of these hammocks might make them a bit warmer with quilts.

    For those mentioning how the pads raise the center of gravity, very true, but a CCF pad does this way less than a thick inflatable. Down side is they are bulkier. The only hammock where I don't notice the thickness of an inflatable pad lifting me up is the 90 degree Hammock Tent.
