+1 on the non-skid kitchen liner! Yesterday finally tried out my dollar store 1-foot wide, 5 foot long, super thin, maybe 3 ounces silicone(?) liner. http://www.dollartree.com/Grip-Shelf...1980/index.pro I unrolled it into the bottom of my Chrysalis hammock and put my prolite pad on top. Previously, even a breeze would make the pad slide around like a greased pig playing shuffleboard! I had taken to putting my pad inside the bag with me, otherwise-- combined with my slippery sleeping bag--my tossing and turning would cause me to risk sliding out of the hammock entirely.
And even this setup led to lots of entanglements since the pad slid around in the bag.
But the liner works great! It was a a short test, but under my considerable load, and despite my twisting and turning trying to see if it would slide around, that sucker didn't seem to move at all! At maybe 3 ounces and the packed size of a baseball, I'm excited!
Now that I read Zukiguy's post, I'm going to seriously consider glueing it together into a kind of sleeve that I can slip on and off the pad. I like that, either way, I don't have to glue anything onto the pad though that's my next move if this doesn't work.
