Is there any point to a pad in the jungle heat? Can one just sleep on the bottom of the hammock (say in undies or a silk liner bag)? I'm getting a HH Hyperlite soon for a trip to the Peruvian Amazon. I've got to get it right before I leave as there are few ways to make any changes once I'm there, I'd bet. I know there are mosquito issues sleeping on a bare hammock and that is why I was considering a pad. I know the silk liner makes that second needed layer, but silk is thin and so I was thinking maybe a pad is safer. But, maybe a pad is way too hot.
I was thinking of the GG 1/8" or the 1/4" as these are so light (but, I gather, not so compact) -- of course I'd like both. But, maybe I don't need a pad at all - and could just use the silk liner bag.
