    Wait. Between the two layers? I thought the layers were sewn together. Is it only sewn on one side, or are both sides open?
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    It is only open on the zipper side. And it is half sewn there.

    There you are.

    Brandon leaves two gaps for inserting a pad. Go with the DL, you won't be disappointed...

    I second Yukon's advise, DL is better as long as your not a gram weenie. I love the ability to use something in between the layers. It may only be a poncho liner to give some warmth.

    Dito That

    New 1.7 dl for my son should be here this week. Have you ever laid in a hammock and wondered if the mosquitos were biting your back side. Kind of weird but the DL helps with that.

    I used a wallyworld waffle foam pad many a times in my BB's until I could afford a UQ.

    A pad works but a UQ is way more comfortable.

    Picture is the pad being used in my wife's BB 1.0 double. (Brandon does not sell the 1.0 anymore)
