    Underfoot Pad Slippage

    I have a 5/8" x 12" x 16" ccf pad I cut for under my feet in a WBBB. It seems to pop out and all around at night. Any ideas to fix it down? Or should I cut a shaped pad segment for the foot pocket?

    Stick it in your TQ or sleeping bag.

    Could you put a loop or two on the corners (tape or small hole). I used to have a few holes in my ccf sit pad and could loop sting around one end of my hammock to control some of the motion. Not sure if a knotty pocket mod would help here.

    I don't use a pad, but I agree with those who say to put it in the foot box. I put the next day's clothes that I don't wear while sleeping in the foot box so they are nice and warm when I wake up and insulate me if I need that.

    Nothing works for me so I have to stick with full length UQ's.

    I guess I toss 'n turn too much, even with the pad inside my quilt.
