I've been using a CCF pad for a while now and have gotten used to the comfort and warmth it provides. Although I believe an underquilt for fall/winter use may be more comfortable, I'm used to the CCF pad concept.
What I am now trying to accomplish is to create a design that can be flexible with the weather and also be muti purpose if possible. So, I've designed a pad with detachable sections via good ol velcro. This winter I've used the wing sections loose and realized they need to be fastened to the main part of the pad. They tended to walk as I moved around...result cold elbows. The main pad is 25" wide, wide enough for me. Walmart provided. The lower section is designed to fit in my crazy creek chair if I take it along or just to sit it on a log around the fire. The upper section will usually hold my Packa as a pillow unless its raining, then I will use clothing to form a pillow of sorts. It can also hold a CCF pad as well. All the pieces are slipcovered with Neatsheet material. I've found the Neatsheet material provides just the right amount of stick and slip required to move around.
I know there are many engineers out there with creative minds. I've appreciated your contributions to my hammocking pleasure. I'm a hanger through and though. Any suggestions/imput on my design is appreciated. I plan to build the pieces soon and try it out. Thanks. See my gallery for the design drawing.
