    Lots of folks use pads in double layer hammocks, just keep in mind that most thermarests are a good bit narrower than most folks like in a hammock as it will rap up around you and your shoulders will not likely have enough coverage to say warm. Wider pads are better in a hammock than what may be used on the ground.

    http://www.rei.com/product/748726 How about this one? Looks to be wide enough plus doubles as a ground tarp if you have to transform your hammock into a ground bivy.
