    Hot Spot still being made?

    I noticed that ENO says they are out of their Hot Spots, and I can't find anyone else that has any in stock. Are they even being made anymore?

    Also, does anyone know of any other comparable alternatives to the Hot Spot besides DIY?

    Also, Also, I'm assuming one of these would work pretty much in any hammock. Am I thinking correctly?

    Thanks! This is my first post!

    It like a number of other products that ENO brings out it is announced and put on their site long before it is available for sale. As far as anyone has seen it has not gotten to market yet. Give it 6-14 months and you may be able to order one

    It's basically a cope of the Speer Pad Extender which is also off the market currently as Speer hammocks discontinued it when they partnered with another shop to make some of their gear for them when they retired. There are a number of DIY threads on how to make a SPE but the Hot spot is even slightly simplified from there.

    o.k., I see what your looking for, basically a SPE.
    easy to make your own if your into diy.
    and yes it will work in any types of hammock
    just do a quick search for SPE or segmented pad extender
    or for more comfort try an under quilt!!! so comfy
    and welcome to the comfort zone

    The HotSpot is ENO's version of an SPE. DIY is your least expensive option, and I doubt there are any other commercial versions of the SPE. Personally, I'd just duct-tape CCF wings to an existing pad, but hey - that's just me.

    Yeah, I'll probably go the DIY route. The hot spot was advertised for $30 so I figured it would be worth it for that price. I did a search here on the forum and found some different ideas for fashioning one so I think I'll give it a go. I don't have a sewing machine, so either the knotted shock cord or duct tape method will be how I'll go.

    Thanks guys! I've been reading tons of old threads and watching videos the past week and have learned so much!

    I just picked one up at REI in San Diego. Hope to test this weekend at Mid TN group hang and do a review. Seems to be a cut down version of the original SPE.

    personally I have found that it is better if you take a reflective material and use it to make a SPE.

    reflective material like this:

    http://www.lowes.com/pd_219377-56291...r|1&facetInfo=

    then sandwich it between something like this:http://gossamergear.com/sleeping/1-8.html

    and then attach it to your pad however you like
