I also had condensation problems sleeping on pads. Last July I tried it without & froze at ~68* in my HHEASYM. . All I had was a poncho liner. I folded it into 4 and put it under me and donned all my clothes to make it through till dawn. After that I cut up an old polargaurd 3d sleeping bag and have since slept well down into the 30's. IMHO A lot more comfy when your not on any type of pad.
