    Smile I've Orderd My hammock!

    I was sure that I wanted the Hennessy Deep Jungle and still think I would like to try it, but after reading lots and lots of threads here and reviews on the web, watching Videos on YouTube I finally Decided on and ordered WBB DL 1.1 with Adjustable webbing susp. and the Mamajamba w/panel pulls: olive brown


    Bad news is I won't get it untill after Memorial day weekend

    Question:
    What dimensions should 3/8ths inch closed cell foam pad be cut for optimal fit and comfort between the double layers?

    Pad size is a personal thing.
    Leave the pad as is, and do some testing when the hammock gets to you.
    Some like a short pad, or cut the pad in a "coffin" shape..etc.

    Biggest thing is cut it fit you and your needs.

    When I did pads, I cut the pad in half (2 pieces @ 30 long x 24 wide) and turned one section 90*'s, so it was wider at my shoulders. That was the best fit for me and my wide shoulders.

    I was planning on ordering bulk 2 or 3 yard chunk of 60" by 3/8" closed cell foam from http://www.a1foamandfabrics.com/, or a local upholstery/foam store and cutting to shape. That way I can start big and trim as needed.
    I was hopeing to get a better idea of space available and general shape from foot box to pillow zone for the pad without having my hammock in front of me yet.

    I ordered the exact same setup and can't wait for it! When did you place your order? I ordered mine about a week and a half ago and am wondering when it will be coming in.
