    Was out last weekend in the White Mountains at 40 degrees with a Thermarest Prolite4 in my WBBB and was plenty warm underneath. The Prolite was $64 on sale at REI last month.

    I use the Megellan, inflatable, HH, and ENO single, Although it has not been that cold at night down here, comfort wise,,, it works for me....It's bulky for back packing I guess, but I don't back pack,,,, It all fits in the kayak, so I'm good with it.

    I have used the Backpackinglight Torsolite with a piece of 1/8'' CC perpendicular to the Torsolite for shoulder/arm protection and and a 150 cm piece of 1/4'' CC lengthwise to protect my legs. This complex setup actually stayed in place quite well and kept me warm down to 35 F. Below that I started to feel a chill from down under.

    sorry to bring up an old thread, but to add...

    I used a REI camp pad 2.5 in my HH Exped this summer as I already had it and I knew that I would likely have to go to ground at some point on my trip. The only thing I disliked about it was trying to stay on it, i'd either roll off it or it would slide down under me between the slick fabric of my sleeping bag and the nylon of the hammock.

    I ordered an Alps Mountaineering 20* bag that comes with a 1.5" self inflator that fits into a sleeve on the back of the bag. Its not the lightest setup, nor the smallest packing, but with the coupon REI Outlet has right now I couldn't not try it, only $80. Weather permitting (basically, not snowing or pouring down rain) I'm going to give it a shot between Christmas and New Years. I'll probably stuff a space blanket in the pad pocket on my WB Traveler just in case...
