    Square or Mummy Pad with the WBBB?

    I have quilts, but I keep pads on the bike in case I have to go to ground or need another layer of warmth. In the past, I have used a square inflatable pad (e.g., exped 9DLX) with another hammock with great success. The square pad helps to hold open the shoulders and foot area. After getting the WBBB, I used a square shaped inflatable pad (the Trekker). There was a little bit of an issue of it shifting in the foot area.

    I've been looking at the Peak Elite AC. Does a mummy pad work work better with the WBBB footbox better than a square pad?

    I use a Thermarest Prolite mummy shaped inflatable pad between the two layers of my BB dbl, which is so far working fine (being as this will be my second night sleeping in the BB). Just remember not to inflate it to much.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Does the foot end of the mummy pad tuck nicely into footbox of the BB? that is, will it slip out when your in, or does the footbox kinda cradle the mummy's foot area.

    I can get a rectangular pad to work, but I am hoping the footbox holds the mummy into place a little better.
