    Good call on the test hang.

    I started with a foam pad and had similar issues. Although I made a custom pad by purchasing a bulk piece of CCf material and cutting it extra wide.

    Eventually I gave up the claminess of the pad for a top quality UQ (which is for sale if your interested).

    My first hang in my WB Traveler I got a cold bottom and legs. I bought one of the car window heat reflectors which helped a little. Next added my Exped SYNMAT UL 7 which also helped. Finally put sleeping bag between the layers and i did sleep comfortably. Can't carry all of that around so I have been looking at UQ. I see that JRB has a Mt. Washington 3 on sale this weekend so I am going to get one. A UQ is the way to go for me.

    I like the look of the HG Phoenix 3/4. I looks toasty!

    My first night in a hammock I got a cold but too. My second night was at the Iowa group hang. From time spent here on the the forum I knew I needed to tighten up my under quilt, so I did. Then Shug came over to inspect, and tightened it up even more. I slept warm and comfy all night long.
