    CCF= Closed Cell Foam

    That's what the blue pad is.

    I'm almost as new to the hanging thing as you but what I know is that I don't recommend the auto windshield sunshield at all. I tried it in my Hennessy UL Backpacker one cold night back in February or March and froze my butt off. It was horrible. If you don't have the time to get the right undercover system than go with the CCF. It's amazing how well they work if you can put up with the shifting and the bulk. The wider the better because you need your arms and hips protected. Personnally, I think it's too late in the game for you to try something new without testing it out first. Learning how to stay warm in a hammock while you're out on the trail for a couple of weeks is not a good time to realize that you don't have the right equipment. Anyway, my vote is for the wal-mart CCF. It's very light and it does work. Good luck to you.

    Yup, standard Closed-Cell Foam (CCF) pad. Wal*Mart sells them for around $6.
