    If your talking about the 25" x 78" long BA pad,,it should fit just fine,,at 3.5 " thick when totally inflated, you will have to play with the inflation as you won't be able to inflate to its fullest thickness I would think. Maybe others that use inflatable pads with chime in,,hope so. I would think using a inflatable pad however is going to elevate you maybe alittle too much in the RR which is flat and has shallow sides to begin with??? I am not a pad user, but still own a set of sleeping bags with BA pads for packing of which I haven't used since going to a hammock over 3 yrs now.

    Ridge runner question

    Thanks. I was thinking maybe a 1/4 or so inflated. It's insulated, so I was thinking more for that. Maybe just for a little structural rigidity for a possible stomach lay but mostly insulation.

    I have used both of the following pads in my ridgerunner:
    Exped Synmat 7 LW - 77.5" x 26" x 2.8"
    Exped Synmat UL7 LW - 77.5" x 26" x 2.8"

    Both worked very well. Very comfortable. And I didn't notice any issues with stability. For reference, I use the full width on the head end spreader bar. At the foot end (only) I have reduced the suspension triangle to 31" dogbones instead of the stock ~42" dogbones (so I can get my tarp doors closed at the foot end.).

    I have used my exped downmat 9 LW pumped completely up and it still fit in between the layers! (and was very warm)
